Lewis & Clark From the Rockies to the Pacific
Category: History: U.S.: L&C

Copyright/published Year: 2002 by Graphic Arts Publ.
Description: In 1803, a group of intrepid explorers led by Meriwether Lewis
and William Clark set off on an daunting mission: to explore and
document the vast interior of North America all the way to the
Pacific Ocean. In celebration of the bicentennial of this famed
expedition, Lewis and Clark from the Rockies to the
Pacific takes a unique look at the most challenging,
dangerous segment of the expedition's journey: the unexplored
territory of the West.
The discoveries of Lewis and Clark revealed to the world the
wonders, resources, and Native peoples of what would later be
designated "Oregon Country": the Plains, the Rockies, the
Columbia River Plateau, and the Northwest Coast.
Beckham's captivating essay includes excerpts from the Lewis and
Clark journals. Reynolds's stunning photography provides a
glimpse of what the spectacular landscape might have looked like
through the eyes of these courageous explorers.
