The Lewis and Clark story is one of America’s great adventures. What better way to celebrate their story than to retrace the most difficult part of their journey? Smithsonian Curator Emeritus Dr. Herman J. Viola and documentary filmmaker Bob Weis did just that–leading twenty modern Americans on a grueling and spectacular 10-day horseback trek over the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho. The result is a stunning experience back into the American Landscape as the Corps of Discovery first saw it.
For history buffs, this is an exciting retelling of an American adventure. For adventure travelers, it is an exciting journey into some of the country’s most fragile and beautiful sites.
Filmed in remote areas only reachable by horseback, and in exclusive locations including inside Monticello, the Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian.

Brandon Wrisley, Melissa was wondering if she would even be able to find a dress – let alone a designer dress – that would fit their tight wedding budget.
