Teachers & parents – be sure to visit our Educator Resources category for learning materials including books, maps and historical items!
Our selection of books begins with President Thomas Jefferson and his vision of westward expansion. It then leads you on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the people and places both then and now, and helps you explore the many-faceted arrays of discoveries from the plants and animals to the important encounters with the Native Americans who helped the explorers find their way to the Pacific Ocean.
You’ll find books about Pacific Northwest History highlighting events before and after Lewis and Clark’s cold winter stay. Art, music, videos, 19th-century theme items and an extensive children’s section await you!
