VERY GOOD SYNOPSIS

(4.5 stars)

This brief overview of the magnificent journey of the Lewis and Clark expedition is exceptionally well-done. It gives the casual reader a satisfying glimpse of the trek and the heroic men who made it. And, it gives the more serious reader a good springboard to further study. Melin, of course, provides great clarity with his faultless narration.

Great Historic Portrait

(4.5 stars)

I am glad to have found this book. Colorful details and reading made its view come alive. Academic books don't give life to hardships of these men's accomplishments. Excellently read

Lewis and Clark

(5 stars)

The narrators reading of this daring and historic story was enjoyable and easy to absorb. Although most of us are familiar with the courage and determination of Lewis and Clark, this volume left me with an appreciation of their deep sense of service and love natire.

Interesting historical perspective on Lewis and Clark

(4 stars)

Despite its shortcomings, when added to other writings and works on the Corp and the characters of its two principals, this book is a worthwhile reminder of the magnitude of the task and the characters of the men who undertook it.
