Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed a continent in 1803 to 1806, they started out in U.S. Army uniforms, which gradually hand to be replaced with simple leather garments. For parts of those uniforms, only a single drawing, pattern, or example survives. Historian Moore and artist Haynes have researched archives and museums to locate and verify what the men wore, and Haynes has painted and sketched the clothing in scenes of the trip. Also included are Indian styles the men adopted, and the wardrobes of the Creole interpreters and the French boatmen. Weapons and accessories round out this complete record of what the expedition wore or carried--and why. A great reference for artists, living history performers, museums, and military historians.

Book News Annotation:

Independent historian Moore and artist Haynes have collaborated on an illustrated history of the clothing, weaponry, and army life of the Lewis & Clark expedition. Their extensive research and their interest in living- history is evident both in text and illustration, which describe the background to the expedition and details of the soldiers' life such as food, medical care, discipline, hairstyles, and most of all clothing. Haynes' finely rendered line drawings and paintings of shirts, vests, jackets, breeches, dress uniforms, insignia, hats, footwear, and cold weather gear, are combined with photographs of relics, and reproductions of illustrations from that time period. The shape of the book is almost square (10.75x10.25").
