Abstract

The incredible journey of the Corps of Discovery led by Lewis and Clark generated a gold mine of information for the anthropologist and historian. Most of the information lies in their journals, but there are some wonderful pieces of information – and some unsolved mysteries – in the great map of the West that Lewis and Clark produced. Investigating the mysteries leads to insights into Native American religious beliefs and both geographic and scientific knowledge.
