Praise for The Essential Lewis and Clark
"Landon Jones has done an excellent job of picking. . . what is essential and leaving out the rest. Anyone who wants to know more about how Lewis and Clark. . . accomplished what they did. . . should have this book." -Stephen E. Ambrose, author of Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West

"In The Essential Lewis and Clark, Landon Jones presents the highlights of an American classic by letting Lewis and Clark tell their story in their own words." -Dayton R. Duncan, writer and producer of Ken Burns's PBS documentary Lewis & Clark

"Landon Jones has ever-so-skillfully assembled the journals of Lewis and Clark so as to allow today's readers to become participants in their historic journey." -Thomas F. Eagleton, former U.S. senator of Missouri

Landon Jones is the author of Great Expectations: America and the Baby Boom Generation. He has reported, written, and edited at Life, Time, Money, and People magazines. He is a member of the National Lewis and Clark Bi-centennial Council.
