About this title


In 1803, at President Jefferson’s request, Captains Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery set out to explore beyond the newly purchased land of the Louisiana Territory to the western end of the continent. By the time the Corps returned years later, everyone believed they were dead–killed by bears, attacked by Indians, or fallen victims to a rough country. But the men had survived and with their long journey, they staked a claim to the West for the new country, America.

This lively, well-written Landmark Book includes excerpts from the expedition’s journals, maps and drawings by Lewis and Clark, and period paintings.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Chock-full of historical detail, Kimmel's account of Lewis and Clark's expedition is an eye-opener. The determination of the two leaders and their Corps of Discovery seemed always to outweigh the obstacles they encountered on this treacherous journey. Aiming to find the Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean at President Jefferson's request, the group traversed 7689 miles, much of it in uncharted territory. In vivid, lucid prose, the author describes the involved planning and preparations and their execution and outcomes. Their meetings with Native Americans were almost always peaceful, a goal set for the pair by the president. Lewis's naturalist talents and Clark's abilities as a cartographer heightened the significance of this journey that pushed the boundaries of the country to the Pacific. Excerpts from original journals add to the authenticity of the account. The extensive bibliography and the index further enhance the usefulness of this volume for reports. Though the clarity of the black-and-white reproductions and photos is inconsistent, a book such as this can excite young readers to delve further into U.S. history. A good companion to Rosalyn Schanzer's How We Crossed the West (National Geographic, 1997).
