Photographer Richard Mack has brought the vistas and majesty of the Lewis & Clark Trail to life in a magnificent set of 248 color photographs. Richard spent two years visiting key locations along the Lewis & Clark Trail – by plane, auto, and on foot – shooting specific locations at the same time of year as was originally experienced. The result is an extraordinary set of images capturing the incredible diversity of the American landscape in different seasons. The Lewis & Clark Expedition – also known as the Corps of Discovery – is regarded as one of the epic stories in American history. The trail stretches across the American landscape starting in St. Louis and follows the Missouri River through the woodlands of the Midwest, out onto the Great Plains before crossing Montana, entering the Bitterroot Mountains in Idaho, and gliding down the Clearwater, Snake, and Columbia rivers to the Pacific Ocean. The pioneering exploits of the Corps of Discovery have been thoroughly chronicled in thousands of pages of narrative by historians as well as in the journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. These words have helped capture in riveting and descriptive detail the sense of discovery and, in particular, the wonder of viewing untouched landscapes and various species of animals for the first time. Unfortunately, the only “pictures” from this expedition were those painted by the words and drawings of Lewis & Clark. Until now. For those interested in the Lewis & Clark Expedition specifically and American history in general, this book is an invaluable supplement to the narrative works in their collection. For those who are simply awestruck by the splendor of nature or the power of photography, this once-in-a-lifetime collection of images will be a treasured addition to their library.

This book was written primarily for those young people; both, boys and girls and their parents and/or mentors who, for whatever reason believe they have no chance at a successful life. This book is the story about a young boy who believed he was in that category while growing up. I hope you will continue reading to see how that little boy changed those odds and ultimately did many things that most people cannot even dream of. There are many children that are born into poverty and thus have no apparent reason to try to succeed. That was the case with Mahlon ‘Dick’ Palmer. Dick was the youngest of four boys and was certainly not a welcome addition to the Palmer family. Keep in mind, he was born in the midst of the greatest depression the country has ever experienced, thus another mouth to feed and clothe was not a welcome addition. There was one positive benefit though; this child did provide a cheap source of labor. As you will discover Dick was expected to work twelve to fourteen hour days, every day until he left home to join the Air Force when he was seventeen years old.
