Description
A primary source for Ken Burns's documentary Lewis & Clark, and Stephen E. Ambrose's most popular single work, this sweeping adventure "takes one of the great, but also one of the most superficially considered, stories in American history and breathes fresh life into it," as Burns assayed. Ambrose, also the author of Band of Brothers and D-Day: June 6, 1944, follows Meriwether Lewis from his early life as a Virginia planter, through his great adventure leading the 1804 Corps of Discovery expedition, to his lonely demise on the Natchez Trace. Along the way, Ambrose shows us the American West as Lewis saw it—wild, awesome, and pristinely beautiful.

"[Ambrose] not only captures the romance of the Lewis and Clark Expedition … he also superbly delineates the cultural and political context out of which it arose."—San Francisco Chronicle
