Oregon Public Broadcasting - The Lewis & Clark Expedition
 

Traditions of Medicine Meet in the American West

We'll compare the European medical knowledge carried by expedition members with the tribal medicine the Corps encountered on its trek across the continent. The expedition offers a useful perspective on the relative merits of distinct medical traditions.


 

The World of Lewis and Clark

The history of the expedition has lured hundreds of thousands of Americans to significant sites along the Corps of Discovery's trail, and to books and events digging into every element of the expedition. Many have become academic and armchair experts on the subject. We'll meet a number of them and find out why they've chosen to enter the world of Lewis and Clark and how they share their enthusiasm for the story.
