|Bon Appetít!-- When Georges Drouillard, the hired civilian hunter and interpreter, accompanied Captains Lewis and Clark on their Voyage of Discovery, 1803-1806, there were no "fine dining establishments" along the Mississippi River!
Today, there are, and Part I of this book provides travelers of the Lewis and Clark Trail guidance to some of the best in both fine dining and "trailside fare."
Called "Drewyer" in the Journals of Lewis and Clark, this adept hunter was also a valued interpreter for the expedition. Few people know that he was a Shawnee man whose residence was in the area of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, both before and after the famous journey to the Pacific Ocean.
In Part II of the book, The Life and Times of Georges P. Drouillard, readers learn more about the historical, cultural, and geographic context of this man, Drewyer, who deserves to be better known and appreciated.
YOU are invited to come along for the ride. Enjoy!
