On the Trail of Lewis and Clark: A Journey up the Missouri River.
In 1804, Lewis and Clark and a band of adventurers called the Corps of Discovery embarked on one of the great expeditions in history, the exploration of the newly purchased Louisiana Territory. Much of their time was spent on the Missouri River. Two hundred years later, four friends follow Lewis and Clark's path up the Missouri. Their journey takes them from Omaha, Nebraska, where they launch their boat during one of the worst floods in a century to Three Forks, Montana, where they meet the headwaters of the Missouri River. The river may have changed over the centuries, but much of Lewis and Clark's Missouri River is still there, massive and beautiful. One of the four friends, the author of this book for children, invites readers/students to travel up the Missouri River and imagine what Lewis and Clark may have seen as they ventured into this new world. Beginning with a map of Lewis and Clark's journey, the book is colorfully illustrated with informative drawings and photographs. Suggested for ages seven and up. (BT)
