Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lewis and Clark expedition traveled the final 450 miles of their journey to the Pacific Ocean entirely by water, the last segment along the Columbia River. Beginning near the Bonneville Dam, the lower Columbia has been designated the Lewis and Clark Columbia River Water Trail in recognition of its rich historical significance. With this authoritative guide, today's water-traveling explorer — or motorist, bicyclist, or hiker — can discover the unique landscapes and history of the lower Columbia and imagine what this awesome, untamed terrain may have looked like during the time of Lewis and Clark.

Book News Annotation:

Hay is an Oregon conservationist long active in Lewis and Clark commemorative efforts. He offers fellow outdoor enthusiasts a guide to 16 trail reaches (sections) constituting the Lewis and Clark Columbia River Water Trail, which pays homage to the explorers and the main mode of transportation of the native peoples they encountered. Trail entries include maps, illustrations, and information on distance, river conditions, and historic and recreational sites. Historical and geographical context, safety and etiquette tips, and resources round out the guidebook.

About the Author

Keith G. Hay has been an avid outdoorsman and kayaker throughout his long career in wildlife ecology and conservation. His interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition began in 1963 when he joined the U.S. Bureau of Outdoor Recreation and worked with the first national Lewis and Clark Trail Commission. In 1966 he received the commission's Jefferson Peace Medal for his two-year study of the expedition's route, and co-authored The Lewis and Clark Trail: A Proposal for Development, which recommended a plan for creating and preserving a "recreational ribbon" along the eleven-state trail. Keith is a founder and past president of the Oregon Chapter of the National Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, vice-president of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Oregon, and a founder and national advocate for the American Greenways Program.
