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 to that question.

When recounting history, all voices and perspectives need to be taken into account. Lewis and Clark are famous — some would say revered — names, but can the same be said for the impact their expedition have on Indigenous people living here for millennia prior? Native writers weigh in, including Pulitzer prize-winner N. Scott Momaday, Debra Magpie Earling, mark N. Trahant, Roberta Conner, and more. Their voices provide the necessary insight that every person living in the United States needs to hear.
