    In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Missouri River, across the forbidding Rockies, and - by way of the Snake and the Columbia rivers - down to the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and his partner, Captain William Clark, endured incredible hardships and witnessed astounding sights. With great perseverance, they worked their way into an unexplored West. When they returned two years later, they had long since been given up for dead.

    "A Great Adventure"
    Overall

    I genuinely enjoyed this book and learned a great deal. The author is very talented at bringing together the many side-stories that contributed to this great adventure. The focus is on Lewis but all participants are well represented. I knew essentially nothing about what Lewis and Clark achieved before I listened to this book. I now feel very knowledgeable about the topic.

    I would have rated this book a 5 if it were not for the unequal emphasis placed on the return trip. The preparation and outgoing leg of the journey were described in appropriate detail. The return portion was covered so briefly I was left craving more details.

    Regardless, I consider this book to be a must-read for anyone wanting to learn more about American history. It was well worth the time and was very enjoyable.
