This chapter describes how Lewis and Clark crossed the Bitterroot Mountains, then and now some of the wildest and most difficult country in the lower forty-eight states. The travel over the Bitterroot Mountains was difficult, even though it was mostly along the Lolo Trail, a road probably in use by Indians for thousands of years. Getting help from Indians and the return trip over the mountains are described.
