From the Eye of the Eagle" is a coffee table book that features panoramic pictures of the Lewis & Clark trail. In 1997, Pete Eyerly piloted a McDonnell Douglas MD 500E helicopter that retraced the trail of the original Lewis & Clark expedition. The beautiful aerial photos, coupled with the vivid descriptions of the American landscape, offer a unique perspective of this country and the Lewis & Clark adventure.

As I put down "Undaunted Courage", historian Stephen Ambrose's compelling account of the journey of Lewis and Clark, a question sprang to mind: What would it be like today to travel the route blazed by the famous explorers? Thus began the adventure chronicled in this book.
It was a journey not by flatboat but by helicopter, flying 500 feet above the same rivers on which the intrepid explorers traveled 200 years ago. It took little coaxing to convince both my co-pilot and friend, Joe Haug, and photographer Keith Haupt, to come along for the adventure.
The trip was everything we had hoped and dreamed. The American landscape has changed drastically. But there are expanses of our vast northern plains that Lewis and Clark would recognize in a moment. Despite the passage of two centuries, it is as if time has stood still.
One of my life's most unforgettable moments came on the last day of our journey as we gazed out on the Pacific Ocean, golden and shimmering at sunset. All three of us felt the same awe at this magnificent sight, and the same special bond with those brave explorers who made the first trip across this great land from sea to sea.
I hope that these photos and accounts inspire you to appreciate the vision and courage that made their expedition possible, to marvel at the unspoiled beauty of the land, and to feel the energy that has transformed parts of their discovery into the America we know today.
