On the Trail of Lewis and Clark:
Traveling up the Missouri River (1995)
(Click on the Pictures)

This book comes from a trip I made up the Missouri, 1700 miles by boat, in 1995 when I traveled with travel writer William Least Heat Moon, from Omaha, Nebraska, up to Three Forks, Montana. We fought a current that sometimes ran 12 miles per hour and met many wonderful people who taught us about the river that had been the path of Lewis and Clark from 1804-1806.
