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."

Here are sample pages from inside York's Adventures with Lewis and Clark. We realize you can't read the small text, but wanted to be clear that this book is text heavy (vs illustration heavy) and definitely for older children!
