Open All Close All

http://schema.org/description

  • "Collection of essays exploring the expeditions and writings of Zebulon Pike (1779-1813) that provided an image of the Southwest that would shape American culture for decades. Pike, an ambitious young military officer and explorer, best known for a mountain peak the he neither scaled nor named, was destined to live in the shadows of more famous contemporaries -- explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Contributors explore: Pike's contributions to science and cartography; his relationships with Native peoples and Spanish officials; the impact of his expeditions on the environment; his role in the Aaron Burr conspiracy; and his life in comparison with other Jeffersonian explorers."
