Lewis & Clark - The Expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark
Publisher: Musaicum Books
Two of America's most famous explorers start upon an adventure that made their names and marked the nation! In 1804 the two men departed St. Louis, Missouri, appointed and funded by President Jefferson and led by an expert group. The expedition was officially considered a success from the get-go... From the start, on the contrary; the expedition was filled with illness, bad luck, hostile Indians, Lewis's chronic depression, and - finally - the shocking surprise of the towering Rocky Mountains and the continental divide! Lewis and Clark made it to the Pacific in 1806, despite everything. Essential listening for fans of history and exploration.
