Reviews:
  • Elizabeth
I remember in 2003 when there was lots of coverage of the L & C expedition. My library burned up in 2007 fires. This is one I replaced.

This is a wonderfully illustrated retelling of the incredible expedition to the West and the Pacific Ocean undertaken by the Corps of Discovery, that amazing group of men (and women) who trekked over four thousand miles from St. Louis to the west coast and back over the course of two years from 1804-1806. The story of Lewis and Clark's journey to the West has been told many times, but never in such an accessible and enjoyable format as this. It is pepppered with excerpts from the expedition's meticulously kept journals and vivid descriptions of the unknown land and the native tribes they encountered in their travels into the vast Louisiana Territory. This book is bursting with beautiful photos, paintings, and drawings that draw the reader into this truly amazing story of adventure and discovery that shaped a young new nation.
  • Hugifyn
This is a terrific art book which, when you think about it, is plenty to ask of a topnotch adventure tale.
There are plenty of key works of Western art in this book, gorgeously reproduced. Karl Bodmer, John Clymer, CM Russell, not to mention several very sharp repros from the original Lewis and Clark journals. Talk about grit and charm.
The book's copious maps will appeal to fans of the excellent Raven series. They look like sharp aerial photos. Doubletrucked across the top of an already wide book, you take in maybe 300 miles of virgin terrain in one eyeful.
The writers are the true tex-istensialists, wandering Lewis & Clark's West under dire skies as well as perfect ones with casual competency. They give us a fresh spin on that legendary trek of two centuries ago, knowing that we are interested in the subject and not the writers themselves. Now, that's refreshing storytelling.

An exciting tale of the journey of these two adventurers and their crew is retold through sufficient text and plentiful images. The photos are striking and abundant and a great way to lure kids into reading the book. It's both educational and entertaining to learn of their trials. However, if you are looking for expansive, in-depth text of every moment, you should check out other books that are a reprinting of their diaries. While this book is thorough, it is really just an introduction to the whole adventure and easy enough that you'll probably finish it in just a few sittings.
