Historian and scholar Dr. Clay Jenkinson provided intriguing insights into the character of Capt. Meriwether Lewis in his Chautauqua-style reenactment of the explorer's account of the Corps of Discovery's journey west.wb00476_.gif (509 bytes)

Dr. Jenkinson has produced several publications related to the Expedition and hopes to release a monograph in February 2003 entitled The Burden of Being Clark.

Best of all, he accompanies tour groups along the trail and adds a dimension of enthusiasm and knowledge rarely matched by other Lewis and Clark historians. If you want to book a tour, visit the web site for Odyssey Tours at http://www.hibek.com/ and tell them Martha and Molly sent you.
