Favorite Sites


collected by Paul and Vicki


Lewis and Clark
The companion Web site to the Ken Burns film, "Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery."

Discovering Lewis and Clark®
Welcome to Discovering Lewis and Clark®. This is a progressive Web site, currently containing more than 1,400 pages, which is increased by one or more new episodes each month. For the most recent updates, see "New This Month" on the following page.

Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation
The mission of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation is to stimulate public appreciation of the Lewis and Clark Expedition's contributions to America's heritage, and to support education, research, development, and preservation of the Lewis and Clark experience.

Go West Across America With Lewis and Clark
Wild rivers. Rugged mountains. An unknown continent to explore. This great American expedition will face them all. And they need your help on this incredible adventure.

National Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commemoration
The Lewis and Clark expedition looms large in the American imagination. It is an unsurpassed tale of adventure and endurance, yet the bicentennial events must be more than a commemoration of a long-ago adventure. This is an opportunity for all of us to evaluate the long chain of cause and effect that links past, present and future.

Colorado Ute Legacy
This web site is sponsored by the Southern Ute Indian Cultural Center. The site and database support our 30 minute educational video COLORADO UTE LEGACY which has been distributed to over 500 Colorado schools. The project was jointly funded by the Colorado Historical Society and the Southern Ute Indian Cultural Center.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, as well as three Academy Awards, Theodor Geisel (best known as Dr. Seuss) authored and illustrated forty-four children's books. Since his first children's book in 1936, Dr. Seuss has introduced several generations of kids to the joy of reading. March 2 is his one-hundredth birthday. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Dr. Seuss: Characters and Unusual Creatures
Although this site lacks graphics and animation, it's a valuable reference. Visit to peruse a list of all of Seuss' books, followed by an alphabetic list of all his creatures (from Aaron, the alligator to Zummers.) Did you know the word "nerd" dates to 1950 when it first appeared in Dr. Seuss' "If I Ran the Zoo"? "I'll sail to Ka-Troo And Bring Back an It-Kutch a Preep and a Proo a Nerkle a Nerd and a Seersucker, too!"

Infoplease: Dr. Seuss
"His books were originally considered too outlandish to appeal to children. His first, 'And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street' (1937), was reputedly rejected by twenty-eight publishers before it finally found a home at Random House." Infoplease brings us an excellent one page bio, and related articles from their encyclopedia. Best link is Grinchy Trivia, which compares the 2000 live action movie and the 1966 TV movie with the original "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" book.

Dr. Seuss National Memorial
Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, which is now home to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial. Best bets are the Geisel biography (All About Dr. Seuss), the tour of the sculpture garden (National Memorial), and Dr. Seuss Art Gallery. Although all the work at the gallery is for sale, you don't need to buy it to enjoy it. Be sure to view the Secret Art Gallery, which displays art not created for any of his books.
