This beautiful concise book discusses how Meriwether Lewis collected plant specimens on the journey of exploration that he & William Clark led across the American West to the Pacific Ocean & back. It includes facsimile excerpts from their original journals. The task of plant collecting was Lewiss military duty, but he seems to have had a real flair for collecting & describing the specimens. It is clear that he spent long hours observing the specimens, perhaps with a magnifying glass, cross-checking the anatomy of the plant before him with an illustrated ed. of Linnaeuss botany book. The hundreds of specimens that survive today are stored in special storage cabinets, in a climate controlled room at the Acad. of Natural Sci. in Phila. Color illus.
