Our Natural History: The Lessons of Lewis and Clark
With the long-running bestsellerdom of Stephen Ambrose's Undaunted Courage and the documentary premiering on PBS, interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition is renewed among not only historians but average readers as well. This book, by a distinguished botanist and naturalist, recreates the grand journey -- and puts it into a new perspective.
With this timely, thought-provoking study, Daniel Botkin captures our imagination with Lewis and Clark's trek from St. Louis to the Pacific, and draws lessons about our environment and our place within it -- offering a stunning portrait of the rugged, beautiful, disappearing wilderness of the American West.
