Larry E. Morris, Writer and Historian
“Morris tells the stories of all, in what can only be described as a wonderful book. The writing is superb; the information relayed is fascinating; the research is impressive; the clarity is noteworthy; and the book is timely. . . . Morris’s work ranks among the best books in the crowded world of Lewis and Clark hagiography; it deserves strong sales and many readers. Essentiial.”—Choice
Morris has fairly interjected new scholarship into his accounting of the exploits of those Euro-American adventurers who followed Lewis and Clark. In so doing, he effectively eliminates much in the way of conjecture in previously published accounts. . . . This book responsibly portrays a select grouping of individuals on the stage of adolescent America and deserves a place on the desk of every student of the era.--Mark William Kelly, Attorney and Author of Lost Voices on the Missouri: John Dougherty and the Indian Frontier.
