An award-winning author, who also penned the book's Introduction, crafts this abridgement of the original journals kept by Captains Meriweather Lewis and William Clark. In the spring of 1805, Lewis and Clark set out with their Shoshone guide, Sacagawea, to explore the wilderness between the Missouri River and the Pacific coast. These journals remain the most vivid descriptions of their epic trek.
