Lewis and Clark by George Sullivan

Book Summary:
Lewis and Clark is a book about two men who explored the western United States between 1804 and 1806 in search for new land. Thomas Jefferson, who was President at the time, recruited them to discover the land of the Louisiana Purchase. The book uses Clarks journal from the expedition. It talks about the people they met and the difficult times they had along the journey. They met probably the most famous American Indian named Sacagawea. She was a Sh

I liked this book because it was really interesting and it made you feel like you were there with Lewis and Clark on there journey to the pacific. It really described there journey and how they encounterd indians on the way and how they had to carry there boats on land for miles before they could putt them back in the water because the river would be so dry in some areas. This book starts out with president Jefferson asks Lewis to lead the expiditon and Lewis decides to bring Clark aong with him ...more

I am not sure if this is the same book. I read it when my grandmother lived with my parents before she died. There is a quote in it that I love about how Lewis and Clarks' thoughts combined like salt in water.That might have been an excerpt from one of their journals too.

For this book, I think people that are very interested in U.S history will like it. At first, it was written in an attractive way especially when President Jefferson named the captains to head the journey which had a lot of suspense.. later on when the journey began, it became somehow boring and had so much details about meeting the tribes( which wasn't entertaining at all) and when the expedition reached the Rockies, the description about crossing the river made the situation worse.
I really didn't get the story and I don't think it's the type of book I would read.I gave this book a one star because I really didn't like it or get it.

This is a series of nonfiction biographies of famous people. The books are written in a way that is easy to understand and are full of pictures, illustrations, and graphics that are sure to intrigue young readers. The series includes: Helen Keller, Abraham Lincoln, Lewis & Clark, Paul Revere, Pocahontas, The Wright Brothers, and Thomas Edison. These are great books to introduce readers to nonfiction.
It's hard to read Lewis and Clark without noticing their spelling, but this time I am poignantly reminded how much happier my seventh grade native-speakers would have been before formalized spelling!
Now I've finished and I have lent it to my husband who is reading a book about the Sioux and had been asking me about them recently!
Second In2Books for Maya. It was interesting to read about the expedition and the kind treatment given to the explorers and the Indians. Mentioned Fallen Timbers, that Clark was in the battle.
stephen is doing this for book report. A bit on the challenging side for 3rd grade reader. Pretty good story telling like version of expedition.

Made a story that could be very exciting a little dry. Lots of information, though.
Fast read. Very enjoyable. It was like a mini history lesson.
