Format: Paperback
William Clark: Indian Diplomat is a thoughtful and detailed biography of William Clark, with especial focus on his public career during the thirty years after the expedition with Meriwether Lewis for which he is most famous. Jay H. Buckley (Associate Professor of History, Brigham Young University) has researched treaty documents, Clark's extensive writings, and more to provide a multifaceted portrait of a complex man. Though Clark felt sympathy and compassion for Native peoples, he was unquestionably a proponent of American expansion - though he strongly and actively promoted that expansion through trade and amiable relations rather than military conflict. He was responsible for one-tenth of all Indian treaties ratified by the U.S. Senate, and arguably played a key role in dispossessing more Indians than any one other American. A handful of black-and-white illustrations enhance this engrossing portrait of a consummate diplomat, highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
William Clark's life after the Expedition is not as well known. He accomplished much in the area of Indian Affairs. This work show how that job led him to often disparate and dissonant positions. On the one hand, he admired native culture and collected extensive paintings and items given to him from various nations. On the other hand, he authored and orchestrated more treaties than anyone in history, displacing the same people he admired, driving them west to reservations. The book is an easy read, thanks to a good writing style. I found myself wishing the author would have included more information about Clark himself...his home, family, hobbies, etc. A bit of personalization would have made this work nearly perfect.
