"The journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark remain the single most important document in the history of American exploration. This compact volume of their journals includes all of the most riveting tales of their adventure, in their own words." "Through these tales of adventure we see the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and western rivers the way Lewis and Clark first observed them - majestic, pristine, uncharted, and awe-inspiring. We are in the moccasins of Lewis and Clark as they witness other wonders no European-Americans had ever seen before: new creatures such as antelope, prairie dogs, and most memorably, grizzly bears. Also included are the explorers' encounters with Native Americans, featuring the reunion between Sacagawea and her brother, a Shoshone chief who secured the expedition's safe passage over the Continental Divide."--BOOK JACKET.
