Informative but hard to believe that Clark could remember all the details he related 10 years later. Clark did more than what is told in this work.
Robert Louis Stevenson novels pale in comparison and this is not a novel! Clark and his men accomplished an amazing feat with their winter march to Vincennes. I cannot imagine wading through floods for days even in a mild winter. Great book -- read it.
