"In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Missouri River to the Rockies, over the mountains, down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean and back. Lewis and his partner, Captain William Clark, endured incredible hardships and saw incredible sights. Lewis is supported by a rich variety of colorful characters: Jefferson, whose interest in exploring and acquiring the American West went back thirty years; Clark, a rugged frontiersman whose love for Lewis matched Jefferson's; numerous Indian chiefs; the French and Spanish fur traders of St. Louis; and many leading political, scientific, and military figures of the turn of the century."--Publisher's information.

I learned so much not only about Lewis and Clark while listening to this book, but about life in early America, President Jefferson, and what happened after their incredible journey. The author did a nice job of acknowledging both the positives (uncharted territory; adventure!) and the negatives (rampant syphilis; abuse of Native populations). Highly engaging and thought-provoking.
