"This is, quite simply, the best guide book to the Lewis and Clark Trail. The maps are outstanding; so is the text. Barbara Fifer and Vicky Soderberg have walked in the footsteps of the Corps of Didscovery, and paddled their canoe in the wake of the Expedition's pirogues. They know this country and they know how to write and what information tourists need. This is a perfect guide for a family or a group of campers following Lewis and Clark on their great adventure."
