At the Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls I visited a wonderful exhibit of this expedition. Once I probably knew how the story ended, but I'd forgotten. The exhibit maintains the suspense until the very end. Unfortunately the Museum of Idaho hasn't updated its website in a while, so there's no information about the exhibit there. But fortunately the same exhibit was presented at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria last year. Their website has a description.

As I looked over the explanation of this game's play, I see many theme matches to the real expedition. Horses vs. dogs, for instance. Crevasses vs. blizzards too. And the reviews have emphasized the tense atmosphere of the play - similar to what the explorers faced.
