About the Author:

David Lavender's publications include One Man's West, Bent's Fort, The Fist in the Wilderness, and California: Land of New Beginnings, all available in Bison Books editions.

From Library Journal:

The story of the Lewis and Clark expedition is well known, but it has been 30 years since the last general secondary account appeared. Using the skills of a master storyteller, Lavender has provided a reliable record of that epic journey, reassessing the evidence in the light of recent research and relating even the smallest details of the expedition. This reviewer's only regret is that Lavender could not wait for publication of the monumental edition of the expedition's journals by the University of Nebraska Press ( The Journals of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, LJ 3/1/87) to be completed. Suitable even for young adults, this work replaces older secondary accounts. Essential.Stephen H. Peters, Northern Michigan Univ. Lib., Marquette
