                                  In Their Footsteps
                        200 Years Downstream of Lewis and Clark

      Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to
      announce the autumn 2012 In Their Footsteps free speakers series.  The
      first program in this monthly series is 200 Years Downstream of Lewis and
      Clark presented by Paul VanDevelder.  This is scheduled for Sunday,
      September 16, at 1:00 p.m.


      Paul VanDevelder, whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Esquire,
      Audubon Magazine and National Geographic Traveler, won a 2011 Oregon Book
      Award for his book, Savages and Scoundrels:  The Untold Story of America’s
      Road to Empire through Indian Territory.  His earlier book, Coyote Warrior:
      One man, Three Tribes, and the Trial that Forged a Nation was a finalist
      for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for history.  Coyote
      Warrior tells the story of the settlement of the North American continent
      through the eyes of seven generations of a Mandan/Hidatsa family.  This
      family hosted the Corps of Discovery at the Mandan Villages in the winter
      of 1804.  VanDevelder is an investigative journalist, photographer, film
      maker and screenwriter whose film, Journey to Medicine Wheel, won Best Film
      honors from the American Indian Film Festival in 1998.  His books will be
      available for purchase at this event which includes a book-signing.
