Overview

Lewis and Clark's Voyage of Discovery defined the American spirit like no other event of the 19th century. Now, in celebration of its bicentennial, Stephen E. Ambrose offers a refreshing look at the explorers and their legendary journey in this IMAX® bicentennial edition of Lewis & Clark: Voyage of Discovery. In a new illustrated introduction, Ambrose talks about the making of the film and its significance in commemorating and documenting the expedition, and the land it crossed, 200 years later. Voyage of Discovery is an exceptional work of history and photography that National Geographic is proud to feature in coordination with the National Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Council and their celebration of 2003-2006.

Changed by time but timeless in its inspiration, the Lewis and Clark Trail comes to life through Stephen E. Ambrose's inspired narrative, rich commentary, personal selections from the explorers's journals, and an accompaniment of stunning new photographs that exhibit the undying beauty of the American West. National Geographic photographer Sam Abell presents an array of compelling modern images from the Missouri to the Pacific Coast that offset rare historic photos, art, and maps—some sketched by Lewis and Clark themselves.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Ambrose and National Geographic photographer Abell traverse the roads taken by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark during their historic exploration of the American West.
School Library Journal
YA-The author of Undaunted Courage (S & S, 1996) has written another excellent book about the two men who were responsible for opening up the American West. Ambrose and his family have spent their vacations following the routes taken by the expedition and this volume is an outgrowth of their travels. Although it is about Lewis and Clark, it is equally about the author's own observations on their impact on the land and people and the positive affect his own trips have had on him and his family. In addition to the superb writing, the book has stunning, full-color photographs of the places that Lewis and Clark so vividly described. Reproductions of many of the actual paintings and maps done by the two explorers are also included. This combination of easy-to-read writing, high-quality photographs, and period artwork makes this book appealing to a wide range of readers.-Robert Burnham, R. E. Lee High School, Springfield, VA
Booknews
A predictable NGS book: clear, direct writing, spectacular photography, fine maps and reproductions of period illustrations. Relies heavily on the journals and secondary sources. It is an inviting and effective place to open a study of the explorers with a modest bibliography. Printed in landscape attitude: 11" x 9". Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
