Lewis & Clark: Great Journey West
Through summer, 2004

 

In 1803, the western part of what is now the United States was uncharted, unwelcoming, and unknown to a young American nation. Thick tangles of forest, deep gorges, and stark spires of stone marked the landscape.

Yet that didn't stop Meriwether Lewis and William Clark from undertaking one of the most daunting expeditions in recorded history. Following the Missouri and Columbia rivers on a journey few ever thought they'd return from, this Corps of Discovery sought passage to the Pacific Ocean .

Oftentimes with nothing but swarming mosquitoes, raging rivers, and bone-chilling cold to keep them company, the band of explorers moved steadily west. And almost two years after they began, through pure determination and more than a little help from bands of Native Americans, they reached their destination.

National Geographic's large-format film, Lewis & Clark: Great Journey West, celebrates the Corps of Discovery's arduous trip, and marks the bicentennial of a legendary expedition.

Film length: 40 minutes
