A fully researched, handsomely illustrated, study that examines in particular the unique contributions of Samuel Seymour and Titian Ramsay Peale in providing both a visual record and artistic impression of the topography, geology, flora, fauna, and Native peoples encountered in the Long Expedition of 1819–20.

It was the first federally sponsored exploratory expedition that was accompanied by professional artists.
