9780874222326: Lewis and Clark Trail Maps: A Cartographic Reconstruction, Volume I

A Vancouver, Washington cartographer based his unique maps on Clark's untapped survey notes excerpted on the maps. Taking into account nearly 200 years of changes to key geographic features of the 7,000 miles that the Corps of Discovery covered, Plamondon's 153 full-page maps precisely depicting the 1804-6 roundtrip permit comparison of the geography past and present from the Missouri River from Illinois to Fort Mandan in North Dakota. The book includes an introductory essay with notes on expedition mapping methods. Indexed by outbound and return camps, dates, locations and events, and place names. This valuable contribution to Lewis & Clark scholarship is part of an anticipated three-volume set. 9x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the Publisher:

Other maps of the Lewis and Clark trail have been published but they are based on Clark's sketches. Plamondon's maps are the only ones based on Clark's actual measurements.

Volume I covers the Missouri River between Camp River Dubois (Illinois) and Fort Mandan (North Dakota), outbound in 1804 and return in 1806.

Volume II, due for publication in November, 2001, will cover beyond Fort Mandan (North Dakota/Montana) to the Continental Divide and Snake River (Idaho/Washington), outbound in 1805 and return in 1806.

Volume III will cover from the mouth of the Snake River to the coast and the route back east that was different from the outbound route.

About the Author:

Martin Plamondon II of Vancouver, Washington, is a former chairman of the Governor's Washington Lewis and Clark Trail Committee. His long-term research in exploration history and twenty-eight years of experience as a professional cartographer have provided the unique set of skills required to complete the trail maps.
