Pub. Date:
Join best-selling author and historian Stephen Ambrose as he and his family journey in the footsteps of Lewis & Clark. Eight chapters weave Ambrose's rich narrative with choice entries from the explorers' journals, with the author's own story of how his family discovered the Trail today, changed by time but timeless in its inspiration. NG photographer Sam Abell's compelling modern images from Missouri to the Pacific Coast offset historic photos, art, and maps, some sketched by Lewis and Clark themselves. In coordination with the Lewis and Clark IMAX film to be released in 2002, the book features a new introduction by Ambrose, which focuses on the making of the film and the importance of commemorating this critical event in American history through the film. His new introduction is accompanied by full-color photographs of the IMAX filming, to give a fresh and intimate view of the voyage today.
