Particularly valuable for Ronda's inclusion of pertinent background information about the various tribes and for his ethnological analysis. An appendix also places the Sacagawea myth in its proper perspective. Gracefully written, the book bridges the gap between academic and general audiences.OCo"Choice""

Nez Perce historian Allen Pinkham and Steve Evans have examined the journals of Lewis and Clark with painstaking care to tease out new insights about what Lewis and Clark wrote about their hosts the Nez Perce. Pinkham and Evans evaluate both what Lewis and Clark understood and what they misunderstood in the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) lifeway and political structure. More particularly they have re-examined the journals for clues about how the Nez Perce reacted to the bearded strangers. They have also gathered together and put into print for the first time the stands of a surprisingly rich Nez Perce oral tradition.

"Sarasohn traces not only strategies and clashes of values but also a rich cast of individuals, from tribal figures with buckskins and MBAs to businessmen betting on the bicentennial and historical impersonators with modern agendas. Like the expedition itself, Waiting for Lewis and Clark ranges from Monticello and Washington, D.C., down the Missouri, and over the Rockies to the Pacific, depicting three Wests - the region of the past and the present and the dreams of westerners."--BOOK JACKET.
