In Shining Mountains, Western Sea, Margaret Wyman tells the story of two members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition who are thrust together against their wills. John Colter is an experienced trapper and woodsman, assigned by Captain Meriwether Lewis to mentor George Shannon, the youngest, least-seasoned member of the crew.

Neither man likes the arrangement, but they put up with each other to face raging rivers, hostile sergeants, unpredictable natives, starvation, thirst, extremes of weather, and injury. Eventually enmity turns to friendship as they discover a new country, new loves and themselves.

With few exceptions, all the books and articles about the Expedition focus on the two captains. But what about the crew? Their experience as privates would have been much different from that of the two leaders. What caused these men to join up? What did they figure to gain? How did the experiences of the Expedition affect them? What were their thoughts and feelings while starving, or freezing, or stuck on the damp, drizzly Pacific Coast? Who were their pals, their enemies among the rest of the crew?In unexplored territory, completely on their own devices for survival, what the 33 members of the crew accomplished was a feat more dramatic than landing a man on the moon.
