SOTW 3, Chapter 32 - The Opened West

It is truly overwhelming how much information is available about the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and it is difficult to find short clips that summarize all of the material available.  There are some excellent full-length documentaries that would fit nicely with this chapter.  As of today, the Ken Burns PBS documentary and the National Geographic documentary are available on NetflixThe Biography Channel episode is available on Hulu Plus.  These and more are most certainly available at the public library if you live in the Pacific/Inland Northwest!
