Volume 8 will include extensive coverage of the Nez Perce lifeways, look at the Flathead tribe and examine the expedition's interactions with these people who played a pivotal role in the Corps' successful completion of the journey - both on the outbound and homeward bound legs of the voyage. Here the members of the expedition were tested mightily during the navigation of Lost Trail Pass. We'll look at their transition from a meat-based diet to one of salmon and camas root and the resulting debilitating sickness among the members of the party at Weippe Prairie. We'll address the making of canoes for the party's return to river travel on the outbound journey and its agonizing wait for snowmelt on the return trip.
