This is an account of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, written in 1951. I had mixed feelings about it. The storytelling is quite engaging, and Mr. Neuberger did a nice job of making the characters more real. However, he is also quite jingoistic, and I had to roll my eyes when he would praise this event or that discovery. I mean, I love my country and all that, but the first sighting of, say, the Columbia River by an American isn't really that big of a deal in the history of mankind. Anyway, if you can get over that flaw in the book, you should check it out. It does a good job of recounting the journey and it made me hunger to find out more about the expedition. If that doesn't make a good children's history book, what does?
