'The saga of Lewis & Clark' re-enacts the journey with excerpts from the Expedition members' journals, intriguing historical artifacts of the Corps' unique equipment, sketches of animal and plant species first recorded during the 'voyage of discovery', archival images of native cultural arts and crafts, and lavish full-color photography of the still-pristine lands that Lewis and Clark viewed on their journey to the Pacific. Traveling the explorers' route in every season, photographer Wayne Mumford has recorded the stunning beauty of a land that remains as utterly magnificent as it was when Lewis and Clark forges westwards. 'The saga of Lewis & Clark' is a must-have for anyone inspired by discovery, natural beauty, and dramatic tales of American adventure.
