About the Author:

Meriwether Lewis (August 18, 1774 - October 11, 1809) was an American explorer, soldier, politician, and public administrator, best known for his role as the leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, also known as the Corps of Discovery, with William Clark.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7-- To those with an interest in history, there is always a unique fascination with primary-source documents. The Roops have taken the eight-volume journals of Lewis and Clark and edited them into short excerpts that capture the highlights of the more than two-year, 8,000 mile expedition across an uncharted wilderness. Ironically, it is this very authenticity that weakens Off the Map ; the 1800's writing style, idiomatic expressions, and customs are often difficult to follow, and there are neither explanatory notes nor glossary. Although some interesting vignettes are presented here, such as Meriwether Lewis's introspective thoughts on his birthday and the explorers' first encounter with a 500-pound grizzly bear, the main value of the book is as an adjunct to existing works. The colorful contemporary renderings, while eye-catching, do little to enhance the historical value of the text. Blumberg's The Incredible Journey of Lewis and Clark (Lothrop, 1987), McGrath's The Lewis and Clark Expedition (Silver Burdett, 1989), and Stefoff's Lewis and Clark (Chelsea, 1992) are aimed at similar audiences and all present comprehensive accounts of the expedition. --Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
