From 1803—1806, in a journey to the Pacific Ocean and back, Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery mapped the lands, described the natural wonders, and encountered the people of western North America. Several editions have been created. Here is a quick history of the editions of the journals that have been created thus far. You will find several writings from the Lewis & Clark Journals noted in this Odyssey Tours website, in the BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE pages, the TOUR ITINERARY pages, and during your selected Lewis & Clark Tour. They will be noted from Lewis & Clark Journals edited by Gary Moulton and published by the University of Nebraska in 1983.

Gary Moulton writes, “When Elliott Coues examined the notebooks in the American Philosoiety archives in 1892–93, he was struck by their good condition and concluded that the predominant red morocco-bound books, at least, could not have crossed the continent: "The covers are too fresh and bright, the paper too clean and sound. . . . The handwritings are too good, and too uniform. . . . The red books were certainly written after the return of the Expedition, and before Lewis's death in October, 1809—that is, in 1806–9." [24]
