In this book, Seaman tells the story of his adventures on the expedition. He was born the runt of his litter and for him things seem like it`s just going to always be boring, That is, until he`s bought by Meriwether Lewis. Then his life turns into an exiting adventure full of fun and fleas. It`s a great book!

The book, The Captain¿s Dog: My Journey With the Lewis and Clark Tribe, was a fast-moving book told in an interesting point of view, a dog¿s. Although not always historically accurate about forks in rivers and exact dates, dipction of aniamls, scenary, and Native Americans was most of the time accurate. Some strong language, but not overwhelming for sixth grade. The diffcult story line, and details including in this book are both hard to follow, but one that needs to be read again to get the full effect of the expedtion. This book, is a suprisingly wonderful novel the second time around when small details link throughout the book. Some opinions expressed in the book are also fictional, and are not historically accurate. When studying the Lewis and Clark expedtion, this book would make, an excellent resource to help for better understanding of the Lewis and Clark expedtion.
