Reading this after the better-publicised Lewis & Clark journals makes you wonder if they were on the same expedition - the Captains' journal is more concerned with who they met, making maps and taking measurements - whereas Gass's journal is full of description of the surrounding country and wildlife (interestingly, Gass rarely mentions anyone but the Captains by name).
The newly-included account-book is very interesting and the list of animals killed for food gives one some idea of the calorie requirements demanded by the intense labour these men went through each day, and also making you wonder if there was anything left for the poor natives after they'd passed through their territory!

This was all I expected after reading about what it contained. It fits really well with the other journals from expedition members. It was in excellent condition too.Published on November 5, 2013 by coach
Good book and recommended. The book is written with a cross-review of other journals and researched materials relating to the journey.Published on July 4, 2013 by J B.
