York's Adventures with Lewis and Clark
An African-American's Part in the Great Expedition
by Rhoda Blumberg

An account of the expedition featuring York--the slave of Clark and the only African American on the expedition. York's strength, skills, and courage were written about frequently in the actual journals, and author Rhoda Blumberg drew from those to present engagingly told stories. In a starred review, Kirkus called it "fine writing…full of maps, sketches, portraits, & other archival materials …one of the best new works on the subject."
