In 1804 Meriweather Lewis and William Clark embarked in an unprecedented two year voyage up the Missouri River and across the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. The tale of their incredible journey, meticulously recorded in their journals, has become an American classic. The journals constitute a magnificent portrait of the unspoiled American West and an exciting record of one of the great expeditions of all time. This new abridgement presents, in modern English, the remarkable adventures of the Corps of Discovery - encounters with grizzly bears, meetings with tribal leaders, the grueling portage around the Great Falls, the epic crossing of the snow-covered Bitterroots, the dismal winter in the Pacific Coast, and the triumphant return to St. Louis. Brief connecting accounts from Anthony Brandt seamlessly link passages and illuminate details that are missing or obscure in the text. Never intended for publication in their original form, the journals are badly spelled, ungrammatical, and often unpunctuated. Every abridgement of the journals have maintained this rough form - until now. This landmrk edition corrects the famous misspellings and poor grammar, retaining the essential text while for the first time making it easy to read.
