The Lewis and Clark expedition to the Pacific Coast in 1803-06 is the great American adventure story. This travel guide to the Lewis and Clark Trail features over 800 tourist destinations from Washington D.C. to the Pacific Coast; and from New Orleans to the Canadian border. Trip planning is made easy. The destinations, divided into ten regions, are grouped by location with 161 maps and driving directions. The second edition includes the historic 573 Lewis and Clark campsites with a new feature--the story of the expedition's adventures connected to the places where they happened. History connected to place makes history interesting.
