Lewis and Clark: Adventures West tells the greatest true-life adventure story in American history. In 1804, the Corps of Discovery set out to explore the unknown lands of Louisiana Territory and beyond. For more than two years they struggled against untamed rivers and clawed their way through rugged wilderness, all the while surviving raging storms, grizzly bears, starvation, and sickness.

They also witnessed the beauty of the American landscape: endless plains, snow-capped mountains, and hundreds of newly discovered plants and animals. They crossed paths with dozens of Native American tribes, with cultures both rich and fascinating.

Led by two extraordinary commanders, they would be the first American citizens to gaze upon the vastness of the Great Plains; first to cross the Continental Divide; first to struggle over the snow-capped Rocky Mountains until they reached rivers that ran westward. Pushing on, they would be the first Americans to reach the Pacific Ocean overland from the east.

Lewis & Clark: Adventures West brings to life the Corps of Discovery's epic journey. Excerpts from Lewis & Clark's journals add depth to the book's riveting narrative. Richly illustrated with rare historical photos, maps, paintings, journal sketches, and breathtaking contemporary photography, it's an exciting tale for anyone--young or old--with a thirst for adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book on Lewis & Clark! Oct. 6 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is filled with photographs (both historical and modern) of the entire Lewis & Clark trip -- St. Louis to Oregon. It reminds me of a National Geographic publication: beautiful, full color pictures, together with thoroughly interesting writing!
As a history buff, it's a pleasure to find a book that's interesting to both myself, as well as my kids!

I loved this book because it summarized all the important points about Lewis and Clark's journey, complete with excellent maps. It also had wonderful photos of the various geographies they went through. A very interesting read, and I have gone back to review it already several times. An excellent reference.
