A Bird's Eye View Of Lewis & Clark's Journey

This book has a very interesting way of telling the story of Lewis and Clark's Journey. The combination of current day photos of their adventure, journal entries, and maps with dates and campsites creates a uniques way of teaching a part of history. It is especially unique for anyone who is familiar with the areas along their journey. My husband and I really enjoyed reading this book.

Lewis & Clark by Air

This is an excellent book. The photos are amazing. It truly is amazing to see how much or how little things have changed in the last 200 years. I highly recommend this book.

A Unique and Informative Adventure

Inside the front cover of the book it tells about Lewis and Clark beginning their journey up the Missouri River to the Pacific. Eighteen months and 4,000 miles later they reached the Pacific ocean. Almost 200 years later Bob and Mike Webster climbed into their homebuilt airplane and followed the Missouri River like Lewis and Clark had done many years before to the Pacific. It was a unique adventure, highly informative, and a great source of history. There are more than 500 photographs in the book and 350 excerpts from the journals of Lewis and Clark and members of the expedition. Each photograph has with it the date the expedition passed that point. The Aircam which Bob and Mike flew has an open cockpit, two seats, and two "pusher" engines. It cruises at 60 to 80 mph. On page 266 it tells all about the plane and shows "work in progress" photos while the Aircam was being built. I found this book very interesting and enjoyable to read.

An Interesting Perspective of Lewis and Clark

Photos of the Lewis and Clark trail from the air are accompanied by quotes by Lewis and Clark, as well as a few other people on the expedition. It is intriguing to see the modern country traveled by Lewis and Clark together with their 200-year-old observations and descriptions.The photos and the research in this book are very well done.
