Reviews - What do customers think about Floating on the Missouri: 100 Years After Lewis & Clark?

A passionate glimpse at a lost era  Sep 7, 2008
My father read Stephen Ambrose's book Undaunted Courage : Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West, which described the upper Missouri river as one of the most beautiful locales in the USA. We made a family trip that autumn with Missouri Outfitters [...] and at intervals, the guides would read us appropriate passages from James Schultz' book. Sometimes it was a description of a particular landmark we paddled by, or a legend of the Blackfeet Indians. Reading the complete text on our return, we discovered a reverent, sometimes poignant, evocation of a world already disappearing in 1902. Schultz had hunted the once plentiful buffalo and elk near the river, and mourned their decline in favor of sheep and cattle. He admired the Plains Indian way of life, and several vignettes document its erosion or eradication. I am glad I live in time when I can be a tourist absorbing the Missouri's beauty, but after reading this book, I can understand Schultz' lament: "There are others -- white men as well as Indians -- who would gladly see the towns and the ranches and the railroads swept from the face of the earth, if they could once more roam these plains, as they were before all such thngs came to be."
A very highly recommended compendium of anecdotes  Jul 20, 2003
Floating On The Missouri: 100 Years After Lewis & Clark is an engaging and informative historical travelogue of James Willard Schultz and his Blackfeet wife Natahki (Fine Shield Woman) who took a small boat along the route that the historic explorers Lewis & Clark once forged through uncharted territory a century after two of America's most famous explorers. A very highly recommended compendium of anecdotes, reminiscences, history, and much, much more fill the pages of this involving and absorbing narrative.
