Lewis and Clark Region, Nebraska

The mighty Missouri River defines the northern and eastern borders of this region first explored by Lewis and Clark in 1804. It was the winding road navigated by trappers, traders and Native American Indians. For centuries, it has fed and shaped the personality of this fertile land. Poet John Neihardt was greatly moved by the river and the spiritual heritage of the Native Americans of the region. His work chronicles and preserves the richness of the Sioux and Omaha Indian cultures. It's a land of beauty and wonder that is sure to bring out the explorer in anyone.
