More About This Book

Overview

Run The Rivers With Lewis and Clark is an accurate historical account of the journey of young America's Corps of Discovery. The Author, Cindy Compton, is an Idaho school teacher who was looking for a resource which could be used to supplement her Idaho History lessons and present the story in a condensed, yet concise manner. Mrs. Compton found that there really wasn't any such thing available, so decided to research and write the story herself. Drawing on the original journals as well as the research and writings of many Lewis and Clark scholars, this book is perfect for students and families.

Written in a straight forward narrative manner, Run the Rivers details the origins of the trip from the forward and westward looking dreams of President Thomas Jefferson, to an explanation of The Louisiana Purchase and an exhilarating telling of the trip itself. Mrs. Compton uses everyday language to present clear explanations of the excitement of the trip and its discoveries and at the same time challenges and draws the reader in by making them part of the party of exploration. The reader is placed in the circumstances encountered and is asked to make decisions which may mean life or death for themselves and their companions before being presented with the actual actions taken and their outcome. This book is a great resource for classroom teachers as well as a great read for anyone wanting to learn about one of the greatest exploratory expeditions ever undertaken.
