Lewis and Clark: A Bicentennial of Discovery has been written with great respect for Jefferson's dream with an eye on its impact on Native peoples and resulting US policies.  Careful attention has been paid to the many complexities and nuances of this legendary journey, making it a catalyst to further discussion.

"Meriwether Lewis was just 28 years old and he was about to embark on a voyage of the greatest magnitude. Did he understand? Did he realize? That his mission of exploration would one day rate beside that of Captain Cook and even Magellan?"
-- Conrad, Modern Day Explorer
