The journals of Lewis and Clark by Meriwether Lewis( Book )

In 1803, when the United States purchased Louisiana from France, the great expanse of this new American territory was a blank-not only on the map but in our knowledge. President Thomas Jefferson keenly understood that the course of the nation's destiny lay westward and that a national "Voyage of Discovery" must be mounted to determine the nature and accessibility of the frontier. He commissioned his young secretary, Meriwether Lewis, to lead an intelligence-gathering expedition from the Missouri River to the northern Pacific coast and back. From 1804 to 1806, Lewis, accompanied by co-captain William Clark, the Shoshone guide Sacajawea, and thirty-two men, made the first trek across the Louisiana Purchase, mapping the rivers as he went, tracing the principal waterways to the sea, and establishing the American claim to the territories of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Together the captains kept a journal, a richly detailed record of the flora and fauna they sighted, the Indian tribes they encountered, and the awe-inspiring landscape they traversed, from their base camp near present-day St. Louis to the mouth of the Columbia River. In keeping this record they made an incomparable contribution to the literature of exploration and the writing of natural history. With 2003 marking the beginning of the Lewis and Clark expedition bicentennial celebration, this journal is now reissued in a beautiful new Penguin Classics package

Jesse's ghost : a novel by Frank Bergon( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
Told without nostalgia or sentimentality, Jesse's Ghost is a powerful novel about a man haunted by the crime he committed decades ago and the realization that the ghosts of his past will always haunt him. These are the sons and daughters of the people portrayed in Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath--the generation who came of age when toughness, hard work, and loyalty defined what it meant to be a man in America. Through the chaos that surrounded him, the risks he took, and despite the mistakes he made, Jesse pursued the American Dream. His best friend Sonny, through the moving, funny, and tragic story he narrates in Jesse's Ghost, seeks a new life and redemption

Edward St. John Arrizabalaga - a forty-nine-year-old desert visionary nicknamed "St. Ed"--Has a dream of a new monastic order for the modern world. Brother S, a young, idealistic former lumberjack from the Oregon coast, keeps the solar-powered hermitage functioning while he secretly longs for a mystical experience. Together, the two monks follow as best they can the fifteen-hundred-year-old traditions of Western monasticism.
