"Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce" to be released Sunday

Posted on 7/26/2013

The Dakota Institute Press of Washburn will release its latest book, Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce: Strangers in the Land of the Nimiipuu, at 5 p.m. Sunday during a special program. The program will take place in the Dakota Ballroom of the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck.

Written by Allen Pinkham and Steven Evans, the book describes the Lewis and Clark Expedition from the viewpoint of the Nez Perce Indians. Pinkham and Evans have gathered oral traditions and interviewed tribal elders to form a narrative account of the expedition's time with the tribe.

Clay Jenkinson, editor-in-chief of the Dakota Institute Press, hopes this book will be the start of a series devoted to Native stories of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

The program is part of the annual meeting of the Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, which is being hosted by the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation in Bismarck this week. Nearly 200 people from across the country are gathering for the four-day event.

Pinkham and Evans will appear along with other Dakota Institute Press authors at the program. A book signing will follow the program at the Ramkota Hotel.
