Meriwether Lewis commanded the most important exploration mission in United States’ early history. Clay S. Jenkinson examines Lewis’s journal entries and letters to reveal a rich, yet troubled personality with aspirations of heroism. When the American mythology surrounding him is removed, Lewis emerges as a fuller, more human, and endlessly fascinating explorer. Originally published by The Dakota Institute.
