Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With excerpts from the journals and nontechnical descriptions, "Plants of the Lewis and Clark Expedition" mixes history with botany and invites readers to see the wildflowers, shrubs, and trees as the explorers first saw them, from indigo bush in Missouri to feather boa kelp on the Pacific Coast.

Book News Annotation:

Amateur naturalists and those interested in Lewis and Clark's epic trip will enjoy this beautifully illustrated, informative guide to the wildflowers, trees, and plants they would have encountered. Arranged by region, the entry for each plant includes an excerpt (when it exists) from the explorers' journals, as well as information about the plant, its flowers and fruits, season, and range.
