First published in 1969, Lewis and Clark: Pioneering Naturalists remains the most comprehensive account of the scientific studies carried out by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark during their overland expedition to the Pacific Northwest and back in 1804-6. Summaries of the animals, plants, topographical features, and Indian tribes encountered are included at the end of each chapter devoted to the particular leg of the journey. A distinguished biologist, Paul Russell Cutright will be remembered for this landmark contribution to our understanding of the world that the expedition observed and recorded.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Cutright] has added a wealth of scientific detail in a style that will please historian and naturalist alike. . . . Over fifty pages of triple-columned appendixes make the scientific examination even more impressive. The medical aspects of the expedition are interestingly discussed."-Journal of American History * Journal of American History *
"The Lewis and Clark expedition was, if nothing else, a scientific accomplishment of the first order, with legacies that remain with us to this day. . . . Anyone with the slightest appreciation for the story of this historic trip across the continent will find this book fascinating from cover to cover. It is impossible to read it without admiring Cutright's scholarship and his ability to translate research into good reading."-Prairie Naturalist * Prairie Naturalist *
