Lewis and clark expedition research paper

Ten Tough Trips includes a final chapter that should be of interest to students of Lewis and Clark. Entitled "Cooper: Then and Now," the essay is about James Fenimore Cooper, who left New York for Paris in 1826, having read the Lewis and Clark Journals in the Biddle edition of 1814, and took with him biologist Edwin James' narrative of Steven Long's Expedition to Pikes Peak of 1819-20. In Paris, Osage Indians waved from the balcony of their hotel to crowds below, before their private exhibition at the Royal Palace. Cooper returned with the first novel set in the American west, The Prairie, and those expedition journals, seen from the distance of Paris, produced a surprisingly clear-headed and unromantic view of "the west."
