About this title


Describes the author's trip through the American West--retracing Lewis and Clark's historic trail from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to the Oregon coast--and his encounters with the people who have adopted the myths of the West

From Library Journal:

Following Lewis and Clark's 1804-06 expedition route, transplanted (to New Hampshire) Iowan Duncan weaves a description of that journey with his own and that area's history. Although adding what has happened in intervening years is reasonable, it occasionally interrupts the dramatic juxtaposition between the 19th-century explorers and the 20th-century writer. Nevertheless, we are left with a sense of awe for Lewis and Clark's accomplishment and envy for Duncan's travels. This is a book of adventure, sightseeing, history, people, and the land. With Duncan, we see Omaha stockyards, depressed farm country, an Indian "sweat," legalized buffalo hunting, and a Nez Perce powwow. His travels engender a concern for the plight of the Native American and the declining family farm. Photos not seen. Roger W. Fromm, Bloomsburg Univ. of Pennsylvania Lib.
