The Lewis and Clark journals : an American epic of discovery : the abridgment of the definitive Nebraska edition by Meriwether Lewis( Book )
9 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,560 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

Wagner-Camp 4: "After the great expedition, Clark devoted his life to military and Indian affairs in Missouri Territory, where he served as territorial governor from 1813 to 1820. The William Clark papers are in the Missouri Historical Society, his Saint Louis Superintendency papers are in the Kansas State Historical Society, his letters sent to Washington are in the National Archives, and his field notes and maps are at Yale. The latter were edited by Ernest Staples Osgood and published by Yale University Press in 1964." Wagner-Camp 13:7: "William Clark's field notes, December 13, 1803-April 3, 1805, describing their winter of waiting on the Mississippi and first year up the Missouri, were discovered only a few years ago. Cutright recounts this discovery and subsequent legal proceedings that transpired before the manuscripts were finally deposited in Beinecke Library at Yale in 1960. They were subsequently edited by Ernest Staples Osgood and published by Yale University Press."
