Lewis & Clark
Blazing A Trail WestBook - 2008
In November 1805, after a perilous trek across North America, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis finally spotted the Pacific Ocean. It was a triumphant, hard-won victory following a year-and-a-half of braving the elements and risking death by starvation, wild animals, and hostile Native American tribes. Who were these explorers who accomplished what no other white men had? And who helped them in their incredible journey across an uncharted, sometimes hostile landscape? Kids will read wide-eyed as they follow Lewis and Clark from their frontier boyhoods to their groundbreaking achievement to the sometimes-tragic aftermath of their success.
