Stephenie Ambrose TubbsHistorian, Expert on Lewis & Clark Expedition

Each summer Stephenie Ambrose’s mother and father, historian and bestselling author, Stephen Ambrose, would pack up their five children and take them on “grand adventures” centered on specific historical events. They spent most of every summer on the road, car camping and traveling across the Great Plains while Stephen researched his latest book. They canoed and hiked entire swaths of America and learned what it meant to live from campground to campground like pioneers heading west.

 Stephenie Ambrose Tubbs holds two degrees in history from the University of Montana and has written and spoken extensively on local and western history, the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Trail, and conservation and preservation of wild spaces in the West. Following in her father’s footsteps, Stephenie became a sought-after expert on the Trail and the Corps of Discovery. During the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition (2003-2006) she traveled the entire trail speaking about various aspects of the expedition. 

She was a researcher for Stephen Ambrose’s three-volume biography of Richard Nixon and went on to become a respected author in her own right, writing The Lewis and Clark Companion: An Encyclopedic Guide to the Voyage of Discovery and Why Sacagawea Deserves the Day Off and Other Lessons from the Lewis and Clark Trail (with Clay Straus Jenkinson).         

Stephenie currently serves as Co-Chair of the Lewis and Clark Trust, serves on the Board of the Montana Preservation Alliance and on the Advisory Council for the American Prairie Reserve.
