Exploring Lewis & Clark: Reflections on Men & Wilderness
Exploring Lewis & Clark: Reflections on Men & Wilderness
Our Price: $24.00

Thomas P. Slaughter (au). Lewis & Clark led our nation’s first transcontinental exploration expedition in 1803. This vol. looks beyond the perspectives of the explorers themselves to those of the woman & the men who accompanied them, as well as of the Indians who met them along the way. He portrays Lewis & Clark not as heroes but as men -- brave, bound by cultural prejudices & hell-bent on achieving their goal. He searches for the woman Sacajawea rather than the icon that she has become. He seeks the historical rather than the legendary York, Clark’s slave. He discovers what the various tribes made of the expedition, incl. the notion that this multiracial, multi-ethnic group was embarked on a search for spiritual meaning. An important work of investigative history! Illustrations. more info
