This accessibly written text opens with Lang's examination of the motivations for the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the environmental ramifications of its discoveries. Next, Abbott identifies the ways in which the Expedition advanced President Jefferson's goal of exploiting the Northwest's natural resources. The volume concludes with a discussion between the authors (both Portland State U.) and two guest contributors on the meaning of the Expedition for the region today. Distributed by
