About this title

Synopsis:

Two modern day adventurers fly a kit-built plane that resembles a green "canoe in the sky" across America to retrace the epic journey of Lewis & Clark.

Traveling low and slow, professional photographer and pilot Ron Lowery and writer Mary Walker flew above the same great rivers that Lewis and Clark explored to capture incredible vistas from the air and celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Corps of Discovery’s odyssey across the continent. The result is a photography and adventure book, Chasing Lewis and Clark Across America: A 21st Century Aviation Adventure.

Using the rivers to guide them, the modern day adventurers crossed the magnificent prairies and western mountains of America along a historic route that is still endlessly fascinating.

The book contains more than 180 dramatic photographs of landscapes eroded into living sculptures, magnificent bighorn sheep on steep canyon walls, herds of buffalo grazing across golden plains, restored forts, and lush green fields and magnificent rivers along Lewis and Clark’s cross-country route.

About the Author:

Ron Lowery, a professional photographer, prefers to think of himself as a sculptor of art who assembles real as well as imaginary elements to form a visual expression. Ron has proven his abilities in many media by producing award-winning three dimensional illustrations marketed as stock images, as well as written works, such as this book. For the past 14 years he has explored and photographed the beautiful United States with his home-built airplanes. These creative talents, plus the lure of adventure, are what led him to take on the challenge of the Lewis and Clark journey.

Mary Walker, writer and highly accomplished pilot, has widely explored her interest in cultural history, ecology, and earth sciences. Her background as a chemist in environmental and scientific research and natural resources has led her to the founding of Environlink® magazine. Mary has studied the history of Lewis and Clark for the past three years. During her journey with Ron, her compassion and knowledge of Native Americans made the duo many long-lasting friends. Mary is an instrument rated, multi-engine private pilot and lives in Tuscon, AZ.
