When President Thomas Jefferson chose Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) to lead a group of explorers on a daring journey across the whole American continent, Lewis agreed -- as long as he could ask his good friend William Clark to be his co-leader. With the help of many Native American tribes, the explorers overcame great obstacles to reach the vast Pacific Ocean. From the river highways of the Missouri and Mississippi, to the grassy Great Plains full of buffalo, to the steep Rocky Mountains, to the dangerous rapids of the Columbia, the journey of Lewis and his friend Clark was one great American adventure. Whether reading for themselves or being read to, children love the captivating rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations of the Heroes of History for Young Readers series.Pages: 32 (hardcover, fully illustrated)Ages: 5-10
