Book News Annotation:

At the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition recently, the Indian voice went virtually unheard, notes the late Josephy (former vice president and editor of American Heritage magazine). He commissioned these nine essays, penned by Indian writers, historians, and tribal executives (including the late Vine Deloria, Jr.), as a corrective. The essays, varied in tone and method, were written in response to the question: "What impact, good or bad, immediate or long-range, did the Indians experience from the Lewis and Clark expedition?"
