Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The 2003 bicentennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition renewed and expanded interest in this historic 8,000-mile journey, undertaken at the urging of President Thomas Jefferson in an attempt to find a transcontinental river route across the United States. Setting out on May 14, 1804, from a location near St. Louis, the Corps of Discovery, led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, completed the round trip two years, four months, and nine exhausting days later. During this time they explored the commercial and scientific promise of the Louisiana Purchase and kept a copious and detailed journal on the flora and fauna they encountered as well as their contact with Native American Indian tribes. More than 350 alphabetical entries, an extensive and detailed chronology with mile markers tracking the progress of the expedition, and ample photographs, maps, and other illustrations combine to present a comprehensive overview of the expedition, with a focus on the personalities of those involved. An opening list of entries gives a quick summary of the book's contents followed by an introduction that establishes the context-historical, political, and social-in which the expedition took place. Individual entries incorporate human-interest stories and anecdotes and include see-also references as well as suggestions for further reading. The lengthy bibliography is subdivided by topic and includes a list of recommended Web sites. Students researching the Lewis and Clark expedition will find this resource invaluable, as it is replete with detailed information, easy to use, and written in well-organized and clear prose. 2004, Facts on File, 464p.; Index. Illus. Photos. Maps. Biblio. FurtherReading. Chronology. Appendix., Ages 11 to Adult.

Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-The 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark "Corps of Discovery" expedition will be celebrated in May 2004. Libraries wishing to satisfy information needs on the subject cannot go wrong by acquiring this comprehensive work. The introductory matter lays appropriate groundwork for novices and is informative, objective, and readable. The 350 entries cover tremendous territory, from the animals and plant life discovered to the personalities involved to the type and quantity of ink Meriwether Lewis took along. Factual data is balanced by human-interest pieces and anecdotes, including an entry on "sex during the expedition." Brief bibliographies follow each entry, and Web sites are included when appropriate. The extensive chronology has numerous maps. Black-and-white photos and reproductions are scattered throughout. A more extensive bibliography as well as an appendix containing additional maps are appended. Information is made easily accessible by an alphabetical list of entries at the front of the book and a subject index at the back. This is a complete, authoritative overview of a fascinating landmark in American history and will be a first purchase for most libraries.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
