River of Promise

Lewis and Clark on the Columbia

David L. Nicandri, Foreword by Clay S. Jenkinson


River of Promise focuses on often-overlooked yet essential aspects of the Lewis and Clark expedition: locating the headwaters of the Columbia and a water route to the Pacific Ocean; William Clark’s role as the partnership’s primary geographic problem-solver; and the contributions of Indian leaders in Columbia River country. The volume also offers comparisons to other explorers and a provocative analysis of Lewis’s 1809 suicide. Originally published by The Dakota Institute.
