Review: Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes

Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes
Lewis and Clark Through Indian Eyes by Alvin M. Josephy Jr.
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

A quote:

“Recent scholarship on the Doctrine of Discovery by Robert Miller, Eastern Shawnee, Lewis and Clark Law School professor, and member of the Bicentennial Circle of Tribal Advisors […] dispels the popular belief that the Louisiana Purchase was a remarkable land deal because the United States did not buy the land in that transaction. If the United States had bought the land, the next century would not have spent executing treaties and buying land for tribes to acquire that territory. Instead, what the United States purchased were Napoleon’s so-called discoverer’s rights.”
