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.

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!
Ms. Mielke's Class Make sure you post how your sheets tell you to!!!!
It was okay to me. It's surprising how early Lewis and Clark die. It will tell you at the end of the book. Their story was pretty exciting to me.RH

The book was pretty good. They went on a 2 year journey from ST. Louis, Missouri, to the Pacific ocean and back again and that was really interesting. KD
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.
