Synopses & Reviews
Step into the boats as St. Louis and travel along with the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Up the Missouri River all the way to where it ends. Over the Rocky Mountains. Down more rivers to the Pacific Ocean.
You'll be gone most of three years, rowing and pulling the boats, walking, climbing mountains on horseback, carrying boats and supplies around big waterfalls and river rapids.
Everything you'll need but didn't bring along, you have to hunt, trade for with Indians, or make for yourself.
You can't speak the languages of the people you'll meet, but sometimes interpreters can help.
You don't know exactly how far you're going, or when you'll return.
You'll see animals and mountains and waters like nothing you ever knew before.
Most of the people who already live there will welcome you, share their food, and enjoy visiting, singing, and dancing together.
