A little dry and repetitive in places but it catalogues the events of the amazing expedition. Soome periods of food shortage and a lot of dog eating on the way. Also gives a great insight into the lives of the many unknown native American tribes that have become extinct in the intervening years since 1804.

Reads like a long book report, with lots of quotes from Lewis and Clark's journals. Interesting for some of it, but started to drag on.
