MODERN ABRIDGEMENT: Totaling 13 volumes in length, the journals of Lewis and Clark have not been newly abridged in more than 50 years. This modern-day abridgement, timed to take advantage of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial celebrations, will focus on the highlights of the journey, and include relevant information left out of the last abridgement. ONLY SOFTCOVER EDITION WITH ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS: For the first time, reproduc-tions of the explorers' original sketches of wildlife, plants and incidents from the journey appear with the text in a paperback edition. LEWIS AND CLARK SCHOLAR Herman Viola, former director of the National Archives and Curator Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution provides an afterword that illuminates the historical signi-ficance of the mission and provides academic context perfect for classroom adaptation of the text. NEW INTRODUCTION: Adventure historian Anthony Brandt takes readers back to America at the turn of the 19th century, when a vast, unexplored continent lay before the Corps of Discovery. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL includes extensive map section, plus equipment lists and significant historical data in a thorough appendix. HANDSOME EDITIONS, COMPETITIVELY PRICED: Gathered together for the first time in inexpensive, accessible editions, National Geographic Adventure Classics offer readers the opportunity to build a comprehensive library of the most adrenaline-packed tales of adventure ever written.
