Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather N. Kolich
Colorful and animated by a rollicking font and lively marginal notes, this "True Book" title examines the historic journey that opened the American west to settlement. The five chapters outline President Jefferson's interest in learning what lay beyond the Mississippi River, some of the challenges and difficulties that the Corps of Discovery encountered during the expedition, introduce readers to a few of the Native American tribes and individuals who helped them along the way, their arrival at the Pacific Ocean, and the lasting effects their journey had on the nation. Bountiful illustrations include sketches from the journals of Corps of Discovery members, maps, photographs of tools they used, and paintings from private and museum collections. Special pages provide information about Sacagawea as well as the variety of animals the corps documented during the journey. A "True Statistics" page near the end pulls details of the expedition into concise numbers. Particularly interesting is the inventory of supplies and gifts the corps took with them. A glossary provides definitions for new words introduced in bold letters in the text, some with pronunciation guides. The end matter also includes sources for more information and an index.
