Hike Lewis and Clark's Idaho (Lewis & Clark Expedition)

Hike Lewis and Clark's Idaho (Lewis & Clark Expedition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a guide for the many visitors to the Lewis and Clark corridor through Idaho who wish to hike in the same wild country where Lewis and Clark met the Nez Perce. With this book in hand, they can have a similar backwoods experience as the famous explorers, from trailheads accessible to most vehicles.<P>This relatively untouched part of the North American continent was the toughest part of the expedition's journey to the Pacific Northwest. Crossing the mountains from the Bitter-root River (in Montana) to the Snake River (in Washington), Lewis and Clark followed rough trails used by the Nez Perce to go buffalo hunting in the Great Plains.<P>The trails in this book will take hikers into that terrain of forests, mountains, and meadows that is virtually the same as it was when Lewis and Clark traversed it two centuries ago. The 200-page book has a descriptive text and a topographic map for each trail, as well as historical and natural descriptions of the area. Only maintained trails are included.

Book News Annotation:

Aegerter, who writes the Lewiston Morning Tribune hiking column, and Russell (Iowa State U.), who uses computer methods to track these historic trails, detail 44 Bitterroot Mountain hikes closely following in Lewis and Clark's footsteps. The book includes information on the area's history, geology, additional hikes, hike preparedness, resources, and maps.
