The Journals of Patrick Gass: Member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Edited and Annotated by Carol Lynn MacGregor.
by [Lewis & Clark Expedition] Gass, Patrick.

Publisher Information:
Mountain Press Publishing Company, Missoula: 1997.

A Near Fine copy with a touch of soiling to the foredge in a Fine dust jacket. Sergeant Patrick Gass was one of the few members of the Lewis and Clark expedition to keep a continuous log of the entire epic journey. His simple and direct wrIting style, along with his emphasis on the daily activities of the trip, made Gass's journal more accessible to the general reader than other firsthand accounts and revealed the optimistic spirit of the expedition. In this new edition, Carol MacGregor's thorough annotation of the journal and the inclusion of Gass's recently discovered personal account ledger lend new insight into the life and work of PatrIck Gass. The Journals of Patrick Gass represents a significant contribution to the study of the Lewis and Clark expedition, essential for everyone interested in the history of Western expansion.
