路易斯和克拉克遇见休休尼人 (Shoshone)

虽然休休尼人欢迎路易斯的来访,但却有存疑。他们最近才刚遭另一部落袭击。当路易斯要求他们一起前去会见其他的探险队成员时,休休尼人担心路易斯可能会要带他们入陷阱。最后,路易斯终于说服了他们一同前去,但当他们回到集合地时,克拉克及其他的成员尚未抵达,所以他们只好在原地等待。

休休尼人很紧张,因为他们不想被伏击。路易斯也很紧张。因为他一定要取得马匹,否则部队就无法完成他们的探险任务。假如克拉克及其他人不赶快出现,休休尼人就会带着他们的马儿离开了。


Although the Shoshone welcomed Lewis, they were suspicious. They had recently been raided by another tribe. When Lewis asked them to travel to meet the rest of his expedition party, the Shoshone worried that Lewis might be leading them into a trap. Eventually Lewis convinced them. But when they got to the meeting place, Clark and the others had not yet arrived. So they waited.

The Shoshone were nervous. They didn't want to be ambushed. Lewis was nervous. He had to get horses or the Corps wouldn't be able to finish the expedition. If Clark and the others didn't show up soon, the Shoshone would leave and take their horses with them.
