"To the Ends of the Earth; The Last Journey of Lewis and Clark," is a wonderful work of historical fiction. I'll admit that in the beginning, the first twenty pages or so, did not grab my attention at all. I found myself wondering how on earth I was going to get through this entire novel. Suddenly it was an hour later, I was over a hundred pages into the story, and completely intoxicated by it. The story is absolutely incredible, and once I got into it, I couldn't make myself put it down.

This novel begins in St. Louis three years after the celebrations had ended with Will Clark serving as Superintendent of Indian Affairs and Meriwether Lewis as the appointed Governor of the Louisiana Territory. But the intervening years have not been kind to Lewis. He is fending off people to whom he is indebted and, more importantly, rebutting criticism from his superiors in Washington that he has misused government funds, and the rumors are washed down with a liberal amount of whiskey and a he ...more

As the book opens, its 1809, three years after the Corps of Discovery has returned from the West, Meriwether Lewis is governor of the Louisiana Territory and William Clark is General of the militia. While Clark is happily married, Lewis is plagued by malarial fever, is drinking too much and is dependent upon laudanum for the pains from the fever. They are both about to be swept into a treasonous plot to gain control of the Louisiana Territory. To say anything more would give away the whole plot. ...more

If you have any interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition, you must read this novel. The research that went into it is amazing!

Boooooring! I gave up at least 3/4 finished. Couldn't stand it. And the author made reference to, "her tiny hands, tiny little thing, child like little wife", even once more I would have thrown up.

One of the best Historical Fiction books I've read. I've always been fascinated with Lewis and Clark, and what happened to them after they returned from the famous journey.

The author brings them to life and his speculations are very convincing. If you like history as much as I do, you will really like this well-written novel.
