Audible Editor Reviews

Norman Dietz, named by AudioFile magazine as one of the "Best Voices of the Century", performs the foundational true adventure saga of American history, The Journals of Lewis and Clark. Edited by Nicholas Biddle, the journals are the harrowing, illuminating, and important account of the two-year expedition begun in 1804 by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in an effort to map the vast territory west of the Mississippi and south of Canada.

Suffering comrades’ deaths, Indian confrontations, and experiencing the grandeur and the desolation of the West, The Journals of Lewis and Clark is like a real-life Odyssey set in the young American republic.

Publisher's Summary

When President Thomas Jefferson acquired the Louisiana Purchase - the vast, unknown lands between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico - he promptly established an expedition to map America's new frontier. Meriwether Lewis and William Clark outfitted the "Corps of Discovery," and on May 14, 1804, 45 men in 3 boats set off up the Mississippi. The trip took 2 years and 4 months, and the record of the expedition contained in the journals of its courageous leaders is a fascinating story of adventure, hardship, and discovery. Excerpted from History of the Lewis and Clark Expedition edited by Nicholas Biddle and narrated by Norman Dietz, The Journals of Lewis and Clark recreates the history and spirit of the men who mapped the frontier.

    "Inspiring!"

    These were real manly men. Articulate. Diplomatic. Driven. Adventurous. Underappreciated. Tireless. Intuitive (Half Nuts) – with the fork in the river. With a heartfelt sad ending. There is nothing like the real McCoy. Spielberg needs to make this movie!
