Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1803, a group of intrepid explorers led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set off on an daunting mission: to explore and document the vast interior of North America all the way to the Pacific Ocean. In celebration of the bicentennial of this famed expedition, Lewis and Clark in Oregon Country takes a unique look at the most challenging, dangerous segment of the expedition?s journey: the unexplored territory of the West. The discoveries of Lewis and Clark revealed to the world the wonders, resources, and Native peoples of what would later be designated ?Oregon Country?: the Plains, the Rockies, the Columbia River Plateau, and the Northwest Coast. Beckham?s captivating essay includes excerpts from the Lewis and Clark journals. Reynolds?s stunning photography provides a glimpse of what the spectacular landscape might have looked like through the eyes of these courageous explorers.

Text by Beckham (Lewis & Clark College) includes dozens of journal excerpts and firsthand accounts of the journey; and Robert Reynolds' color photographs, taken at points along the trail at the same time of year as Lewis and Clark would have visited them, reveal the landscape as it would have appeared to the explorers.
