The Character of Meriwether Lewis

Explorer in the Wilderness

Clay S. Jenkinson


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.
