Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes

By ,

This year ends the bicentennial celebration of the legendary Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-06. Over the last several years, much has been written about Lewis, Clark, and the expedition’s impact on the opening of the West. However, little has been noted about the impact that they had on Native American life and culture. Josephy, author of numerous books on Native American history, corrects the omission with this collection of nine essays by prominent Native American authors. Contributors include Debra Magpie Earling, Professor of English at the University of Montana; Bill P. Yellowtail, former Montana State Senator and EPA administrator under President Clinton; and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist N. Scott Momaday. Diverse, fascinating, and a good read, this collection is a welcome addition to the growing literature on the exploration of the West in the 19th century.
