The Salish People and the Lewis and Clark Expedition

198 pages. 8X10 hardback.

An in-depth examination of the events and historical significance of the Salish People’s encounter with the Lewis & Clark expedition.

“[A] remarkable and beautifully produced book. . . . It flips the standard lens of history to portray a critical American historical event from the perspective of the Salish people of western Montana. . . . Perhaps the most important reason the authors were able to write such a compelling narrative is the three decades of cultural preservation work, including extensive interviews with tribal elders that have been recorded and stored in the tribal community. This truly beautiful book is a community-based project.”—David R.M. Beck, Oregon Historical Quarterly
