First published in 1969, Lewis and Clark: Pioneering Naturalists remains the most comprehensive account of the scientific studies carried out by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark during their overland expedition to the Pacific Northwest and back in 1804–6. Summaries of the animals, plants, topographical features, and Indian tribes encountered are included at the end of each chapter devoted to a particular leg of the journey. This is the work for which the distinguished biologist and author Paul Russell Cutright will be remembered longest.

Paul Russell Cutright (1897–1988) was a historian and a zoologist who wrote extensively on American natural history. Paul A. Johnsgard is Foundation Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences at the University of Nebraska. His forty-two books include The Nature of Nebraska: Ecology and Biodiversity and Crane Music: A Natural History of American Cranes, both available from the University of Nebraska Press.Review:
Cutright "has added a wealth of scientific detail in a style that will please historian and naturalist alike. . . . over fifty pages of triple-columned appendixes make the scientific examination even more im-pressive. The medical aspects of the expedition are interestingly dis-cussed."—Journal of American History (Journal of American History )
"A meaningful contribution to the history of science . . . [aiming to] show the importance of Lewis and Clark as pioneers of natural history and to present in depth the scientific contributions of their expedition in the areas of botany, zoology, and allied sciences. . . . Of particular merit to scholars will be the excellent descriptions of flora and fauna discovered by the two explorers."—Library Journal (Library Journal )
