Description

  • Great product!
  • A biography of Meriwether Lewis that relies heavily on the journals of both Lewis and Clark, this book is also backed up
    by the author's personal travels along Lewis and Clark's route to the Pacific. Ambrose is not content to simply
    chronicle the events of the "Corps of Discovery" as the explorers called their ventures. He often pauses to assess the
    military leadership of Lewis and Clark, how they negotiated with various native peoples and what they reported to
    Jefferson. Though the expedition failed to find Jefferson's hoped for water route to the Pacific, it fired interest
    among fur traders and other Americans, changing the face of the West forever.
