An American biography about two very famous people, Lewis and Clark. It tells the history of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 and their trip westward. It would be great for history class and the children would enjoy it because there are great illustrations!

This is a very good example of a biography in that it gives accounts about two people very important in U.S. history: Lewis and Clark. It is written in chronological order and begins with a background of both explorers before it begins to tell about their adventure exploring the west. It contains accurate facts as well as quotes coming from letters between President Thomas Jefferson and Meriwether Lewis. It describes their encounters with American Indians as well as with animals and nature. It discusses the great accomplishment these two explorers and their crew made in the history of the United States and what impact this had on it. Media: oil pant and watercolor
