9780060559359: The Essential Lewis and Clark Selections

The journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark remain the single most important document in the history of American exploration. Through these tales of adventure, edited by American Book Award nominee Landon Jones, we see the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and western rivers the way Lewis and Clark first observed them -- majestic, pristine, uncharted, and awe-inspiring.

Landon Jones has selected the most memorable journal entries left behind by Lewis and Clark, and edited them for all readers -- those steeped in the lore of the expedition, as well as newcomers to the unforgettable journey.

From AudioFile:

Portraying Meriwether Lewis, Peter Friedman reads his part with the carefully articulated, refined voice of a Southern aristocrat from Virginia. Friedman's performance embodies the cautious, thoughtful man to whom Thomas Jefferson entrusted the expedition. Portraying William Clark, Tom Wopat has the voice of an experienced soldier cured by the Western sun and beaten by prairie winds. Echoes of the regions through which Lewis and Clark passed seem to be reflected in his voice. Wopat's voice narrows and constricts with the excitement of each unbelievable new discovery and languishes when the expedition is held up by illness or interference from weather or Native American inhabitants. Unfortunately, this edition of unabridged selections is so select as to lack coherence. So much material has been eliminated in the interest of producing a pocket edition of one of America's most remarkable endeavors that the readings are mere sound bites.
