9780803238701: Lewis and Clark among the Indians

'James P. Ronda in Lewis and Clark among the Indians has drawn from the journals and other documents a compelling narrative of the expedition's encounters with the Indians. It is a story of discovery and suspense, and it is told with a modern concern to understand the Indian side as well as the white in the meeting of the two cultures' - Francis Paul Prucha, "William and Mary Quarterly". 'The Lewis and Clark expedition has long attracted the attention of many American historians, but this is the first book-length study of the expedition's interaction with the Indian people whom it encountered on its journey of exploration...[It] is particularly valuable for Ronda's inclusion of pertinent background information about the various tribes and for his ethnological analysis. An appendix also places the Sacagawea myth in its proper perspective. Gracefully written, the book bridges the gap between academic and general audiences' - R. D. Edmunds, "Choice".'Conceptually ...a brilliant book, extremely well written, superbly re-searched, masterfully organized. By blending traditional historical scholarship with anthropological and archaeological research, Ronda gives us the first ethnohistory of the expedition in a beautifully crafted narrative' - Doyce B. Nunis, Jr., "Huntington Library Quarterly". James P. Ronda holds the H. G. Barnard Chair in Western History at the University of Tulsa. His other publications include "Astoria" and "Empire", also a Bison Book.

Review:

"The Lewis and Clark expedition has long attracted the attention of many American historians, but this is the first book-length study of the expedition's interaction with the Indian people whom it encountered on its journey of exploration. . . . [It] is particularly valuable for Ronda's inclusion of pertinent background information about the various tribes and for his ethnological analysis. An appendix also places the Sacagawea myth in its proper perspective. Gracefully written, the book bridges the gap between academic and general audiences."-R. D. Edmunds, "Choice"
