With the flood of Lewis and Clark tomes in the past year, it is quite refreshing to read William Hill’s latest book.
As with his previous books, Hill brings his trademark “You are There” style to this unique account of the frontier exploration. Hill’s use of actual drawings, coupled with modern photographs, portray a panorama of the frontier and a real sense of then and now. Precise documentation of technology, biology and human nature add to this all-in-one accounting. A must have for your travel adventures.
