The definitive book on the most momentous expedition in American history and one of the great adventure stories of all time. In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Mississippi River to the Rockies, over the mountains, down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean, and Back. Lewis was the perfect choice. This is a book about a hero. This is a book about national unity. But it is also a tragedy. Includes an Index. "A superb portrayal of this fascinating pioneer of exploration and natural history. A must-read for those with an interest in the American West, the frontier, and American History." - Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
