THE Pacific Northwest is a vast scroll upon which has been written the history of a people. We, whose cushioned journey on the Northern Pacific closely approximates the trail followed by those fearless explorers, Lewis and Clark, can but dimly sense the grim struggles endured before this land, now smiling in abundance, was subdued by the point, not only of the sword, but the plow. How it was found, conquered and fashioned for the needs of man, and to convey to you some of the glamor, romance and beauty of the winning of that empire, is the purpose of this brief account.
The colorful, beautiful West! It stirs us today. The vast sweep of prairie, flowing on and on in rolling billows of land, still touches deep within us some hidden chord which generations of padded existence have not quite killed. The Rocky Mountains still cast about us the spell of their majesty and clothe our minds with a peace not known in cities. How, then, did the hearts of those young men, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, respond to the mystery of this new country where white men had not come, where the buffalo and antelope grazed in unnumbered thousands, where the lure of the unknown beckoned, as it has ever beckoned, to youth!
