Overview

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.


An account of the journey across the unexplored territory west of the Mississippi River undertaken by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in the early eighteen hundreds by order of President Jefferson.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This retelling of the Lewis and Clark expedition doesn't touch John Bakeless's saga of the Corps of Discovery for adventure and information. However, this book is wonderfully illustrated. Contemporary portraits, reproductions of illustrations by Corps of Discovery member Patrick Gass, and 19th Century paintings of different Indian tribesman in full dress by Catlin and Bodmer, as well as maps and reproductions of pages from the Lewis and Clark journals break up the text. Each chronological chapter opens with a quote from one of the expedition journals. The large, clear typeface makes this book an easy read. 2003, Landmark Books/Random House Children's Books,

School Library Journal
Gr 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).-Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Woolly mammoths, giant sloths, a race of tiny cannibals, erupting volcanoes, a salt mountain-did these things really exist in the unexplored northwest? Lewis and Clark would find out on their famous journey from 1803-06. President Jefferson had just doubled the size of the US with the Louisiana Purchase-800,000 acres at three cents an acre. Now Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were assigned to find and map a Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean. They were to make friends with the Indians, encourage peace among the various tribes, keep journals about the plants, animals, and landscape, collect samples of plants and animals, and establish an American presence that would further American trade. With strokes of luck along the way-the help of young Sacagawea, the decision of the Nez Perce to help them rather than kill them-the party did make it to the Pacific, though they did not find a Northwest Passage. They found hundreds of new plant and animal species, made contact with several Indian tribes, and established an American presence in the area to counter the British presence. Thanks to the journals, we can see through the eyes of Lewis and Clark and behold the wonders of a courageous odyssey through a pristine wilderness. Kimmel's (In the Eye of the Storm, not reviewed, etc.) work is a well written, lively account for young readers. Each chapter opens with an excerpt from the journals, and maps, illustrations, and excerpts from the journals are sprinkled throughout. The return trip is given cursory treatment, but this is a fine introduction for young readers and a solid addition to the growing number of new books about Lewis and Clark, such as Laurie Myers's Lewis and Clark and Me (p.886) and Laurence Pringle's Dog of Discovery (not reviewed). (index and bibliography, not seen) (Nonfiction. 8-12)
