The Journals of Patrick Gass: Member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition

By Patrick Gass

Edited and annotated by Carol Lynn MacGregor


Sgt. Patrick Gass's journal--never widely available to a general audience--is the most readable and straightforward firsthand account of the Lewis and Clark expedition, largely because Gass focused on the human aspects of the epic journey. In this new edition, Carol MacGregor's thorough annotation of the journal and the inclusion of Gass's previously unknown account book from later in his life lend new insight into Gass's work and his life.
