This publication was stimulated by plans for "The Nature of Lewis and Clark on the Great Plains," a symposium and associated art exhibition coinciding with the bicentennial celebration of the 1804–6 Lewis and Clark expedition, to be held in Lincoln, Nebraska, during the spring of 2004. The art exhibition is being sponsored primarily by the University of Nebraska's Center for Great Plains Studies, to which all royalties for this publication have been assigned. The author expresses his deepest appreciation to Reece Summers, curator of the Great Plains Art Center, who first suggested the project, to Gary Moulton, whose monumental work on the Lewis and Clark papers made it feasible, and to James Stubbendieck, director of the Center for Great Plains Studies, who strongly urged that the plants of Lewis and Clark be included in the project's coverage.
