A lot of the books you find on Lewis & Clark are just a review of the journey. Allen's book instead places the expedition in a larger context. This book along with Ambrose's Undaunted Courage, Donald Jackson's Thomas Jefferson and the Rocky Mountains and Bernard Devoto's edition of Journals of Lewis & Clark and essential reading for getting at the larger context of the expedition. Highly recommended.

A truly fascinating read of exploration and attempted location of the mythical water passage across the western U.S. from the geographical perspective. From the mid 1600's up to and including the Lewis and Clark expedition, geographical mappings of the west were theoretical and conjectural, leading to misconceptions and inaccuracies in cartography and images of unexplored lands. With loyal support and backing from Jefferson, Lewis and Clark set out to locate the legendary water route across America for U.S. commerce, while at the same time collecting and taking notes on cartography, botany, zoology, geology, ethnology and natural resources, along with postulating future agricultural possibilities for the nation. Although the image of a fabled water passage was shattered and the idea of a totally agrarian society was somewhat fragmented, the Lewis and Clark expedition did succeed in being the premier stepping-stone for western expansion and maintained the imagery process of the west right up to the present time. A spellbinding read.
