    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book would be good to listen to in one siting because the points make sense in context together. It's less than an hour which is comfortable. I enjoyed stopping it from time to time and pondering the message. It can be listened to in sections with stopping points as the topic headings. Although if it can be listened to in one sitting that would be better.

    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.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction wasn't extreme compared to others I've had. Although I did feel very deeply for the people described in the book and what they went through. The descriptions were clear and detailed enough for the listener to get a good sense for what the Lewis, Clark, and their men went through. Particularly for me because I've had expedition experiences out West. From that perspective I'd say descriptions were realistic of what such journeys are like. I certainly felt the heartbreak experienced in the sad moments and the abounding joy Lewis and the others felt at times.


    Any additional comments?

    I struggled for a while on wether to buy the abridged audio version of this book or the unabridged. The unabridged is what I ended up with and I am very pleased with the choice. Many of the details of daily life one the Westward trek as well as the background surrounding the expedition were valuable to hear. They provided perspective on why things happened the way they did and gave context to the larger historical events of the day. Unless someone is only looking for the big points of the Lewis and Clark undertaking I recommend the unabridged version for this audiobook.
