The report of the first United States expedition to the Southwest, here in the handsome first British edition. One of the most important American travel books, including accounts of Pike's explorations on the Mississippi, Red, and Arkansas rivers and his visit to the Spanish settlements in New Mexico.

The Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-1806 across America from Pittsburg to the Pacific and back was the third recorded transcontinental journey. President Jefferson had negotiated the Louisiana Purchase of over two million square kilometres from the French in 1803, and the aim of the expedition was to investigate the territory involved. He commissioned a Corps of Discovery as a scientific and military expedition to survey the acquisition, appointing his aide Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) to lead it. It was hoped to discover that the Missouri and other rivers could be used for transcontinental communication and transport, and to assess the natural resources of the area. Some of the party returned east with specimens, reports and a map, while the remainder reached the Pacific in December 1805. Volume 2 covers the journey from Three Forks, Montana, the source of the Missouri, to the Pacific, and their winter quarters

Travels of the Source of the Missouri River and Across the American Continent by William Clark( )

2 editions published in 1815 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulled from the original report, Travels is the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition told in their own words. This text was one of the few written records published in the era. Many of the other records were recovered and printed much later. This is a contemporary telling and should be a considered a historical resource
