Meriwether Lewis was undoubtedly the greatest pathfinder this country has ever had. The crucial expedition that he and William Clark led up the Missouri River opened up the American West. This award-winning biography chronicles that bold voyage and probes the lesser known aspects of Lewis's life: his youth in Virginia, his close relationship with Thomas Jefferson, his turbulent career as governor of the Louisiana Territory, and his tragic and mysterious death at 35. Detailed maps of the expedition's route included.
