Lewis and Clark Among the Grizzlies: Legend and Legacy in the American West
By: Paul Schullery
Of all the perils and wonders encountered by Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery, none so perfectly represents the enduring mystique of the western wilderness as does the grizzly bear. In this adventure-filled book, historian-naturalist Paul Schullery celebrates the expedition’s rich legacy of grizzly lore in light of modern scientific knowledge and separates the legends from the even more thrilling realities.
For the first time in two hundred years since Lewis and Clark led their expedition from St. Louis to the Pacific, we hear the other side of the story - as we listen to nine descendants of the Indians whose homelands were traversed.
