Description
Between 1803 and 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark co-captained the most famous expedition in American history. But while Lewis ended his life just three years later, Clark, as the highest-ranking federal official in the West, spent three decades overseeing its consequences—in particular, Indian removal and the destruction of Native America. This biography by the vice president of the National Council of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial considers Clark's remarkable life and his influential career in their full complexity.

"Landon Jones has given us a map of William Clark's life, showing us the points where he was a man of his time and the moments he was far ahead of it. He directs us to Clark's involvement in the sad episode that was the removal of the Native American Indian, spanning from its naive beginnings to the bitterly cruel end. Jones presents William Clark warts and all; we see that for all his apparent contradictions, Clark remained always a man true to himself."—Stephenie Ambrose Tubbs
