Very inspiring story of the Corps of Discovery told by the main contributors to the PBS tv series, Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns. Had bought the book and video long ago, watched the video, and never got around to the book. Glad I finally did - worth the effort. Now, I'm watching the video again. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679454500, Hardcover)

Having chronicled the Civil War and baseball, among other subjects, filmmaker Ken Burns collaborates with historian Dayton Duncan to craft this moving portrait of the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-6. The story is one of individual triumph and tragedy, and its cast members--a slave, several women who save the expedition at key moments, and veterans of a bitterly fought revolution--represent the early Republic in microcosm. Packed with well-chosen illustrations, Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery is a fine synthesis of what we know about Meriwether Lewis and William Clark today, knowledge that remains shrouded in a certain mystery.
