On the River with Lewis and Clark
by Verne Huser
- 224 PAGES
From the Ohio river to the Columbia, Lewis and Clark rowed paddled, pulled, poled, sailed, and portaged their way into history--mapping, collecting, and recording a country's first glimpse of its Western wealth. Huser has canoed, rafted, or cruised much of the expedition's route. He brings to the famous story his knowledge of the "ways if wind and water," giving readers a rare, first-hand look at the benefits and hazards of river travel as they might have been experienced by the thirty-three explorers--some boat-men, some not--on the river with Lewis and Clark. Of the 10,000 miles traveled by the expedition, more than 9,000 were by river.
