If you want to be entertained while being educated....READ THIS BOOK!! I highly recommend this for every adult. If you have a student in the home that is not interested in history or does not understand the value of learning history, this is a perfect way to get them interested. Truly one of the most exciting true adventure's of all time.

I tried reading the journals in their original form, but it was rough going--this version with modernized spelling and eloquent summaries between the passages not included make reading about their great expedition fun. I got my son hooked on it too--a wonderful introduction to this phase of American history. Grizzly bears, encounters with native Americans, hunting for food, Sacagawea and her baby--it's all there. If Lewis & Clark interest you at all, this version is the one to read now. Certain to be the classic abridgment.

Boring in some spots, but very good and highly entertaining. The writings of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, with most of the boring stuff edited out. Of their first encounter with Grizzlies after being told how ferocious they are(by the Indians). New lands and creatures. I always thought that I would have gone on this adventure in 1804. After reading the journals, I see I probably would have complained so much, as to get the boot. Deserters and heroes, facing difficult situations. A true adventure story in every sense.

As a historical researcher, I find Mr. Bergon's book a necessity in locating information, whether it be on native tribes, expedition equipment, plant's and animal specimens, and so on. By far, the best abridged edition on the market and a necessity for the new L&C buff or long time enthusiast. A real gem since it includes the expedition's summary of equipment purchases.

There is too much detail in them describing their trip. Moves very slowly.
Helruss More than 1 year ago
Slow reading. Lots of repetitiveness. Publisher should have checked this. I have read other copies of the journals and they were better
