Publisher's Summary

Commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the rumored Northwest Passage, Lewis and Clark instead discovered a seemingly endless land whose very existence foretold a future America infinitely different from what had been imagined.

Against staggering odds, these unique men inspired such absolute loyalty in each other and in their group that they are still widely regarded as the most successful leadership team in American history.

Today's leadership adventures unfold in the rugged terrain of business, and who better than Lewis and Clark to lead us through its toughest challenges? Their story resonates with business leaders of our time because they had to:

  • Think strategically
  • Make tough and timely decisions
  • Surround themselves with good people
  • Manage resources
  • Motivate the team
  • Deal with different cultures
  • Assimilate information from many sources
  • Balance long-term goals against short-term realities
  • Learn from their mistakes
  • Try new approaches
  • Most importantly, they had to persevere and change course in the face of adversity. Their lessons will inspire business leaders to take their teams to new adventures of great discovery.

    What the Critics Say

    "Whether the 'project' is a westward expedition or a hostile corporate takeover, Uldrich makes the case that the past isn't so different from the present - or from the future. The parallels between these men and today's leaders are intriguing and well thought out. For corporate types looking for tips, there is certainly plenty to digest, even if the narrative goes deeper into the history of the westward exploration than is needed for a management primer."
