I am the author of Lewis and Clark Road Trips: Exploring the Trail Across America, which features over 800 destinations. The eastern trail, as well as the southern trail (New Orleans and the Death of Meriwether Lewis) are included.

There are many National Park Service sites, and Native American destinations. We traveled over 8,000 miles on the trail, and it took six years to write. It was published in 2006. The destinations are on facing pages with custom maps and driving directions.

My new book, The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime Scene Investigation by James E. Starrs and myself was published in April, 2009. Professor Starrs will be the leader of the exhumation team if permission is obtained to exhume the remains of Meriwether Lewis, as the Lewis family descendants have asked. See their website, and the websites for the two books, and
