In studying Meriwether Lewis' life and death, everything hinges
back on the central figure of Jefferson who hired Lewis, sponsored
him, aggressively promoted him, but then wrote an epilogue that
contradicted all previous actions and statements by labeling Lewis
suicidal. That single inexplicable paragraph wiped out any serious
debate as to the cause of Lewis's death for almost two hundred
years. No one can or should attempt to decipher what happened to
Lewis without first explaining why Jefferson would eternally
condemn a friend and his good name with that stained legacy. What
could drive such a bitter step as to further destroy a man that has
already died? That question cannot be ignored and in attempting to
answer it this book was produced with Jefferson where he belongs as
the central figure of not only the glory widely heaped upon him but
also in the deaths of many that orbited his dark planet.
