A historical novel recapturing Lewis and Clark's 1803 historical crossing of the American continent spurred by the vision of President Thomas Jefferson. Based on primary sources penned by the explorers (for the main by Clark) which includes much scientific data on flora and fauna, and further strengthed by the author's personal re-tracing of their steps. Outstanding recreation of the 1804-1806 expedition as well as a biography Merriweather Lewis (1774-1809).
A rather long book. However, this is a very personal look into one of the greatest adventures of our very young country. Glimpses into Pres. Jefferson's thinking are particularly revealing and the relationship of Lewis, Clarke & crew (including one American Indian woman) help us understand how this long journey was accomplished.
