About this title


In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson purchased the Louisiana Territory. During the next fifty years, twelve American exploration parties entered the state to gather facts and contact native tribes. Those inroads on the frontier have been chronicled in this book. The high drama and excitement surrounding these intrepid explorers make each article a tale of discovery, bravery, and danger. Their legacy was new knowledge about the frontier, peace with the Indian tribes, and expansion of America's borders.
