The Journals of Lewis and Clark, 1804-1806

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark

Book Overview: 

"The expedition of Messrs. Lewis and Clarke, for exploring the river Missouri, and the best communication from that to the Pacific Ocean, has had all the success which could be expected. They have traced the Missouri nearly to its source; descended the Columbia to the Pacific Ocean, ascertained with accuracy the Geography, of that interesting communication across the continent; learned the character of the country, its commerce and inhabitants; and it is but justice to say that Messrs. Lewis and Clarke, and their brave companions, have, by this arduous service, deserved well of their country."

The principal inducement with the British fur companies, for continuing their establishments on the Assinniboin river, is the Buffaloe meat and g. . . Read More

Maybe I'm a sap. I don't know. This book was enthralling from start to finish. One of the most pivotal moments in American history as Merriwether Lewis and William Clark set off on a brave expedition of what would soon become United States territory. Sent on a mission of exploration and commerce by

The ultimate travel book. A well-edited and annotated conglomeration of both Lewis & Clark's journals of their journey to find the west coast of America and back. Truly one of the most amazing journeys ever made by Americans - and one that still is probably more amazing than the one made to the moon

A fascinating look at the journals of the two leading men of the first expedition to cross what would become the United States, from the Missouri river to the west coast. Apart from the distraction of almost randomized spelling and idioms used, this is a look at a mostly unspoiled country, and an in

After reading The Journals of Lewis and Clark, I’m left amazed how fragile their expedition really was. It’s nothing short of a miracle that only one person died from their crew throughout, despite constant near death experiences from the likes of native peoples, bear and other animal attacks, wildf

I finished this many years ago but was reminded of it after making a stupid drunken comment on someone else’s progress with Mason and Dixon. Reason: Similar atmosphere in both books, and I really think Pynchon used this as a reference for writing M&D as the tone is similar, as well as word choices a

A somewhat cumbersome, laborious read. Echoing the musquetos, eye knots and prickly pears pestering Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery.

A journal entry or two a day for nearly a year and it was worth every word and hour. Clark wasted no words while Lewis was a story teller and their cohesive voices took me on an uncharted journey to the west coast through land that no white man had yet seen at that time.

I've followed many parts of t

Every product of the American school system knows the basic story of the Lewis and Clark expedition. In 1803, Thomas Jefferson nearly doubled the size of the United States by purchasing the Louisiana Territory from Napoleon. But he did not know what he had bought. Most of the land was not even reall
