REVIEWS discouraged the disenfranchised from pursuing their temporal political rights. Cy nthi a A. Kie rner is a professor of history at George Mason University. Her most recent book is Martha Jefferson Randolph, Daughter of Monticello: Her Life and Times (Chapel Hill, NC, 2012). Zebulon Pike, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West. Edited by Matthew L. Harris and Jay H. Buckley. (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2012. Pp. 256. Cloth, $29.95.) Reviewed by Adam Jortner In 1813, when Thomas Jefferson described Meriwether Lewis as ``of courage undaunted,'' he effectively buried Zebulon Pike, who had died a few months earlier. Jefferson's canonization of Lewis and Clark stuck Pike with second fiddle (along with Thomas Freeman, William Duncan, George Hunter, and many others). A new volume, edited by Matthew L. Harris and Jay H. Buckley, offers several attempts at reassessing the historical significance of Pike's journeys. That is not easy: Pike's career took a series of missteps. In his 1806 trek across the Great Plains, Pike was arrested by Spanish forces and told his captors he was lost--not a great legacy for an explorer. Worse, when he returned to the States, he found himself pegged with treason.
