Overview

Two hundred years after the Corps of Discovery led the first official exploration party, Lewis and Clark are still celebrated among the greatest of American explorers. President Thomas Jefferson commissioned his young secretary, Meriwether Lewis, to lead an intelligence-gathering expedition through a great expanse of new territory just purchased by the United States called the Louisiana Purchase. From 1804 to 1806, Lewis, co-captain William Clark, and the corps made the first trek across North America, mapping the rivers and making claims to the territories of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Most importantly, Lewis and Clark kept a journal, describing in great detail the Native American tribes they encountered and the 122 species of western birds and animals, and the 178 plants they sighted. Between the two of them, Lewis and Clark produced 200,000 words in their journals. Their writings continue to be a source of fascination to Americans.

Great Explorers tells the stories of some of the world's most influential figures whose quest for gold, land, and knowledge changed the course of history and created the modern globe. These books are a key resource to help students understand the stages of European exploration amid international rivalries.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up–The information in this series on well-known and oft-written-about explorers is not necessarily new but it is presented in such a way as to attract and maintain readers' interest. Each title opens with a glimpse into a particularly thrilling or critical moment in the man's life, and then the chapters unfold chronologically. The explorers' triumphs and foibles are described in keen detail, with the common factors in their stories being the descriptions of the subjects' unending desire to see the world, do something no one else had done, and their unfailing determination. With a full complement of maps, photographs (where available), illustrations, time lines, and document reproductions, a full story is told. Well-written and thoroughly researched, this series will make a solid addition.
