Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"If Meriwether Lewis has turned and taken five steps from William Clark, the two men would scarcely have been able to see each other." So begins this fascinating and compelling narration of the final month of the Lewis and Clark expedition — the struggle to reach the Pacific Ocean and find a winter camp.

The thirty days from November 7 to December 7, 1805, have been the least researched and least understood chapter in the Lewis and Clark story. Only a gifted local historian and lecturer like Rex Ziak, a life-long resident of the lower COlumbia River, could bring together all the relevant information about the regiond, meticulously connect it to a close reading of Lewis and Clark's journals, and then present this new research to the reader in a narration that vividly brings the history to life.

Filled with maps and photographs clarifying the details of Lewis and Clark's passage through the lower Columbia, this unique book will take the reader on an unforgettable journey full of danger, despair, bravery, and triumph.

Review:

"No one else knows as much about what took place in November and December 1805 in the Columbia River estuary as does Rex Ziak....'We proceeded on' is a common phrase in the Lewis and Clark journals, as well as a common phrase among students of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Rex's book has helped us all to 'proceed on' better informed." from the Foreword by Robert C. Carriker, Professor of History, Gonzaga University, and Director of National Endowment for Humanities seminars on Lewis and Clark, 1985-2003

Book News Annotation:

Born and raised near the mouth of the Columbia River, Ziak was immersed at an early age in the story of Lewis and Clark. At some point he discovered that scholars had never thoroughly detailed the last days of the journey on the Columbia—the 30 days between November 7 to December 7, 1805—in part because Clark's journal entries for this time period are vague and confusing. This lovingly prepared book results from Ziak's efforts to remedy that neglect with careful, personal research and correlation of the river and the diary. Unusually attractive maps and photos enhance the narrative. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In Full View, a captivating new book by Rex Ziak, is the gripping story of Lewis and Clark?s final approach to the Pacific Ocean. This dramatic portion of their journey?s history, overlooked by other Lewis and Clark historians, is revealed here in a compelling narrative accompanied by vivid maps and illustrations. In Full View makes clear for the first time the tribulations endured by the Corps of Discovery before their triumphant achievement of the mission assigned them by Thomas Jefferson.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 211) and index.

About the Author

Rex Ziak [pronounced "zeek"] has studied in great depth the environment and history of the lower Columbia River region, where he has resided all his life. Despite a successful career as a photographer and cinematographer that has taken him all over the world, he has been able to devote many years to researching the details of Lewis and Clark's adventures near his home. His efforts have been recognized by, among others, the Washington State Historical Society, which awarded him their David Douglas Fellowship Award in 1999. He is now much in demand as a lecturer and consultant on Lewis and Clark and is working to preseve and memorialize their campsites along the Columbia River. This is his first book.
