Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This fascinating and well-written autobiography tells the story of a man determined to assemble the most complete collection of materials related to the Lewis & Clark expedition. Wendlick worked most of his life in the construction industry but spent nearly twenty years hunting down materials through book stores, antiquarian book dealers, and auctions. He managed to pay off his colossal debt in 1998 through an arrangement with Lewis and Clark College and currently maintains a desk there. Contains sixteen photographs in the center of the book, along with two appendices listing the 1905 World's Fair memorabilia he acquired and his printed materials collected from 1980-1998. There is no index. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
