Review:

"Schanzer's account of the 1804-1805 journey has colorful, action-filled pictures, and a text drawn from the actual journals and letters written by Lewis and Clark and members of the expedition....a fine introduciton to one of the most exciting chapters in American history."

Review:

"This outstanding picture book is a must-have for anyone with an interst in American history." Publishers Weekly, starred review

Appealing art and descriptive text bring Lewis and Clark alive for young adventurers. Carefully chosen text from Lewis and Cark's actual journals opens a fascinating window into this country's exciting history.
