Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

Two hundred years ago, Meriwether Lewis led the Corps of Discovery across the Continental Divide and down into the Salmon River country of what is now Idaho. There, in a mountain meadow, the explorers me the Mountain (Lemhi) Shoshoni. The Lemhi's aid to Lewis and Clark helped the Corps of Discovery reach their destination and sealed the fate of the Lemhi people.

Synopsis:

Indian expert and historian, Brigham Madsen, tells the story of the Mountain Shoshoni culture — from the fateful day in 1805 when Chief Ca-me-ah-wait met Lewis and Clark, to 1907 when the Lemhi moved to the Fort Hall reservation.

Madsen explains, step by step, how pressure from the expanding white culture changed the Lemhi way of life.

About the Author
