He corrected the record of Lewis and Clark and put Washington on the map!
Author Rex Ziak will present a program Sunday, November 3 at 2:30 PM based on his book, of “In Full View.”
The program follows the Cowlitz County Historical Society‘s annual meeting (2pm, open to the public) at the Museum.
The Naselle, Wash. resident’s local knowledge and years of hands-on research led to this book, published just before the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial. His findings startled historians and revealed a missing chapter of the Expedition’s travels on the lower Columbia.
Ad a result, Ziak was invited to Jefferson’s Monticello as a guest historian and his work led to the re-drawing of the boundaries of the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park to include Washington locations, along with Fort Clatsop.
Ziak is known as a captivating and fascinating speaker. The free program, co-sponsored by the Historical Society and Columbia River Reader, will be followed by a reception and book signing. The Cowlitz County Historical Museum is located at 405 Allen St., Kelso, Wash.
