The Journals of Lewis and Clark

by

The Journals of Lewis and Clark Cover

 

Staff Pick

This selection of the Lewis and Clark journals, compiled by Harvard scholar John Bakeless, is the perfect selection for readers with a general interest in Lewis and Clark. Bakeless has edited down the voluminous journals into a relatively concise collection of the most interesting and typical journal entries. Unlike many of the other editions available, he has also corrected and reworked the spelling, punctuation, and grammar of the original writers – which was erratic to say the least – in order to make the journals more readable for a contemporary audience.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring of 1805, Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, with a small band of men and a Shoshone woman, set out on a journey to explore the Western frontier-land of America, from the Missouri River to the northern Pacific coast and back. Written by the explorers themselves, these journals remain the most vivid depiction of their epic trek.
