Across the Wide Missouri

Three quarters of a million square miles were at stake. By the eighteen-thirties (the period of this history), the French and Spanish empires were dead and the fight had narrowed down to Great Britain and the United States. In "ACROSS THE WIDE MISSOURI," Bernard DeVoto shows the decisive actions - from Astoria, through the Hudson's Bay Company advance, the coming of the missionaries - by which the United States won the empire of the West.

This is the story of the mountain men in the climatic years 1833-38, with special focus on the expedition headed by a Scottish sportsman, William Drummond Stewart, who had the foresight to take with him a talented young artist, Alfred Jacob Miller - and who thereby brought back a unique pictorial history of the early West.
