Larry E. Morris is the author of The Fate of the Corps: What Became of the Lewis and Clark Explorers after the Expedition, a History Book Club selection, The Perilous West: Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail, and coauthor of The Mystery of John Colter: The Man Who Discovered Yellowstone.
The result of thorough research and thoughtful writing, In The Wake of Lewis and Clark . . . belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the expedition and its long-term implications.— We Proceeded On: Journal of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation
The Lewis and Clark Expedition continues to engage the imagination of many fascinated by the U.S. West . . . Drawing heavily on secondary sources and nineteenth-century published accounts, Morris retells many of the tales of U.S. expansion through the lens of the Lewis and Clark expedition.— Montana: The Magazine of Western History
“Larry E. Morris has fairly interjected new scholarship into his accounting of the exploits of those Euro-American adventurers who followed in the wake of Lewis and Clark. In so doing, he effectively eliminates much in the way of conjecture and supposition associated with previously published accounts. Morris further asserts that the bold tales of old - occurring under the banner of Manifest Destiny - cannot rightfully be told without reference to the subjugation of American Indians. Morris, of course, correctly provides that, under the Doctrine of Discovery, there could be but one sovereign, which circumstance yet remains a source of contention today. This book responsibly portrays a select grouping of individuals on the stage of adolescent American and deserves a place on the desk of every student of the era.”— Mark William Kelly, Attorney and Author of "Lost Voices on the Missouri, John Dougherty and the Indian Frontier"
