Near Lapwai in Nez Perce County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
While the river fostered a life of bounty and a sense of homeland, it also became a conduit for change -- Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery in 1805, gold miners in the 1860s, and tourists in the 1880s -- altering the meaning of the river forever.
