How We Crossed the West
Adventures of Lewis & Clark


by Rosalyn Schanzer

The 40 volumes of the diaries of Lewis and Clark were condensed into this one book that focuses on the excitement and adventures of the expedition. Information from letters, notebooks, and the many journals was used to describe this trek of 7,689 miles. The tale is made even richer by numerous drawings adding detail.

In a starred review, Publisher's Weekly said "This outstanding picture book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in American history."
