Description:
In 1803, a group of intrepid explorers led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set off on an daunting mission: to explore and document the vast interior of North America all the way to the Pacific Ocean. In celebration of the bicentennial of this famed expedition, Lewis and Clark from the Rockies to the Pacific takes a unique look at the most challenging, dangerous segment of the expedition's journey: the unexplored territory of the West.

The discoveries of Lewis and Clark revealed to the world the wonders, resources, and Native peoples of what would later be designated "Oregon Country": the Plains, the Rockies, the Columbia River Plateau, and the Northwest Coast.

Beckham's captivating essay includes excerpts from the Lewis and Clark journals. Reynolds's stunning photography provides a glimpse of what the spectacular landscape might have looked like through the eyes of these courageous explorers.
