The author discovered these Chronicles in transcribing the original handwritten journals. He has edited and annotated them to include brief biographical sketches of the members of the expedition, background information regarding the Native American Indian tribes they encountered, and the current place names of the geographical land marks the captains named in honor of members of their party. (Sadly, none of them remain named as the Captains intended.) Anyone reading these Chronicles will agree with historian and author Stephen Ambrose when he said, "The journals [Captain Meriwether Lewis] wrote are among his greatest achievements and constitute a priceless gift to the American people."
