The journals of Lewis and Clark by Meriwether Lewis ( Book )
155 editions published between 1840 and 2011 in English and held by 4,974 libraries worldwide
Two Centuries Ago, an American epic unfolded as Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery mapped the lands, described the natural wonders, and encountered the peoples of western North America. Following orders from President Thomas Jefferson, Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set out from St. Louis in 1804 to search for a river passage to the Pacific Ocean. The heroism of the men of the Corps of Discovery and of Sacagawea, the Shoshone interpreter who became an essential member of the party, makes the expedition a quintessential American adventure. In their own words, recorded in the famous journals of Lewis and Clark, the members of the Corps of Discovery tell their story with an immediacy and power missing from secondhand accounts. All of their triumphs and terrors are here-the thrill of seeing the vast herds of bison on the plains, the tensions and admiration in the first meetings with Indian peoples, Lewis's rapture at the stunning beauty of the Great Falls, the fear the captains felt when a devastating illness befell Sacagawea, the ordeal of crossing the Continental Divide, Clark's joy at seeing the Pacific, miserable days of cold and hunger, and the kidnapping and rescue of Lewis's dog, Seaman. The natural wonders of an unspoiled America are captured in these pages. The lives and customs of its Native peoples also vividly come to life: Lewis and Clark's friendship with the Mandans and the Nez Perces, a deadly fight with the Blackfeet, and a series of intricate interactions and negotiations with numerous northwestern tribes. The cultural differences between the corps and the Indians make for living drama that at times provokes laughter but more often is poignant and, at least once, tragic. In this riveting account, editor Gary E. Moulton blends the narrative highlights of his definitive Nebraska edition of the Lewis and Clark journals. For the first time the voices of the enlisted men and of the Native Americans are heard alongside the words of the captains. New maps and illustrations enrich this American epic of discovery.

Into the unknown leadership lessons from Lewis & Clark's daring westward adventure by Jack Uldrich ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,281 libraries worldwide
When Meriwether Lewis accepted President Thomas Jefferson's commission to explore the fabled Northwest Passage - a rumored all-water route to the Pacific Ocean - he knew he was in for a challenging, even dangerous time. What he didn't know was that the next three years would demand strength, courage, and wisdom so rare that his story would resonate powerfully some two hundred years later. Lewis and his friend and co-commander William Clark never did find the all-water route. There wasn't one. But they did reach the Pacific, and along their incredible journey, they realized that America was, and forever would be, very different from what anyone had imagined. As they led their Corps of Discovery through harrowing (often life-threatening) conditions, they displayed leadership traits that were extraordinary by any measure and light years ahead of their time. An exploration of the trials and triumphs of the Corps reveals a set of principles that today's leaders [should] emulate in order to take their own teams through the rugged and unpredictable terrain they will inevitably encounter. [This book] spells out these ten principles and the value they hold for contemporary leaders.-Dust jacket.

Dear brother : letters of William Clark to Jonathan Clark by William Clark ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 729 libraries worldwide
Over the course of his career, American explorer William Clark (1770-1838) wrote at least forty-five letters to his older brother Jonathan, including six that were written during the epic Lewis and Clark Expedition. This book publishes many of these letters for the first time, revealing important details about the expedition, the mysterious death of Meriwether Lewis, the status of Clark's slave York (the first African American known to have crossed the continent from coast to coast), and other matters of historical significance. There are letters concerning the establishment of the Corps of Discovery's first winter camp in December 1803, preparations for setting out into the country west of Fort Mandan in 1805, and Clark's 1807 fossil dig at Big Bone Lick, Kentucky. There are also letters about Lewis's disturbed final days that shed light on whether he committed suicide or was murdered. Still other letters chronicle the fate of York after the expedition; we learn the details of Clark and York's falling out and subsequent alienation. Together the letters and the introductions and annotations by James J. Holmberg provide valuable insights into the lives of Lewis and Clark and the world of Jeffersonian America.
