Not what I expected but ...
Any additional comments?
I was looking for first hand accounts of undeveloped North America through the eyes of the first Europeans to see it. There was only a little of that, but as I learned it is because there was never much of that recorded. Lewis was supposed to write a book but never did, so there are only journals he and others made which are thin in details and descriptions.
Instead this 'book' (a public radio series in fact) provides a lot of interesting and expert views on the journey, and what they did and did not accomplish.
There was also a lot of perspective on the impact of the encounters and what followed on the native people and their way of life. I found this fascinating, sad, and very thought provoking.
