Summary
"Between 1803 and 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark co-captained the most famous expedition in American history. But while Lewis ended his life just three years later, Clark, as the highest-ranking federal official in the West, spent three decades overseeing the expedition's consequences: Indian removal and the destruction of Native America. In a combination of story-telling and scholarship, author Landon Y. Jones presents Clark's life and career in their full complexity."--Jacket
