The book, "A Picture Book of Lewis and Clark (Picture Book Biography)" by David Adler talks about Lewis and Clark exploring lands and regions past the Mississippi River and seeking help from the indians to find it. Lewis and Clark face many triumphs and downfalls, one being Lewis being shot, but at the end the two men, along with the help of the indians succeeded in their mission. The setting of this story helps with the book because it is about a true event. The pictures help the reader envision how America looked back then. ( )

This is an informative book about the American pioneers Lewis and Clark. Throughout the story, the reader learns about the successful expedition Lewis and Clark took to the Pacific Coast. We learn about all the people they meant along the way. Some resulted in conflict with Native American tribes, while others were peaceful. I really liked how the back of the book had a timeline. This makes it easy to look back for certain dates. The pictures help bring the story to life as well. Each picture described a part of their journey and I think children would benefit from the illustrations. ( )

A quick biography of Lewis and Clark, how they met, and why they began the expedition. A description of the expedition including meeting the Mandan tribe and Sacagawea, a bear attack, and reaching the Pacific Ocean.

A biography about both the beginning of Lewis and Clark's lives as well as their well known journey through undiscovered America. Meriweather Lewis and William Clark set out on May 14, 1804 on the Mississippi River and up the Missouri on a journey that would take two years, four months, and ten days, and would lead to great knowledge of the American frontier. Along the way, Lewis and Clark met Sacagawea, along with several other American Indian tribe members.
From the Author's Notes in the back of the book I learned that Thomas Jefferson originally asked General George Rogers Clark, William Clark's brother, to lead the expedition west of the Mississippi River. I also did not know that both Lewis and Clark were both officers in the army and that is how they knew each other.
This is a great book about Lewis and Clark and their unforgettable journey across America for any and all ages. ( )
