I've got somewhat of an interest in the Lewis and Clark journey; as an exploration but more so because of the beauty of the country they traveled in.  I've retraced much of their route, including their forts on the Pacific.  Great experience to them and me. is outstanding.

 

Their Journeys are available in paperback: THE JOURNALS OF LEWIS AND CLARK, Penguin Books 1995.  this is the literal journal with lots of misspellings, but does have some explanitary foot notes.  An excellent read p483, and travel guide somewhat.

 

If you’re not a dyed in wool historical, “IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF LEWIS AND CLARK". National Geographic Society, by G. Snyder (195 pgs) is a modern retracing of the L&C route with authors own trip.  It tells the story of L&C very well with many great historical paintings and modern photographs.  A large book that is easy to read.  Best is it has lots of small maps embedded in the text to visualize the trip.  A must read for anyone living within a half days drive of the Missouri/clearwater/snake/Columbia rivers.

I read a lot of historical books and have read the original journal and agree it's a very interesting read. If you are interested in that kind of book there are quite a few old journals of early Africa exploration that are good reads also.

I have an original pressing of The Dark Continent and The Boer Wars if you care for a good read.

Favorite section was on the use of the flintlocks on grizz. Priceless. Interesting their response to the Flatheads of the west coast as well.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!
