Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes

Nine Indian Writers on the Legacy of the Expedition

by Alvin M Josephy Jr

At the heart of this landmark collection of essays rests a single question: What impact, good or bad, immediate or long-range, did Lewis and Clark’ s journey have on the Indians whose homelands they traversed? The nine writers in this volume each provide their own unique answers; from Pulitzer prize-winner N. Scott Momaday, who offers a haunting essay evoking the voices of the past; to Debra Magpie Earling’ s illumination of her ancestral family, their survival, and the magic they use to this day; to Mark N. Trahant’ s attempt to trace his own blood back to Clark himself; and Roberta Conner’ s comparisons of the explorer’ s journals with the accounts of the expedition passed down to her. Incisive and compelling, these essays shed new light on our understanding of this landmark journey into the American West.
