    Has anyone ever read this book? A group of hunters I guided the other day were raving about it.

    Yes, and they were raving for a good reason. I would give it a 9 out of 10.

    I remember one part where a guy forgot to pick up his knife when they broke camp, and when he remembered, he backtracked through the forests for a couple of days, all alone to retrieve it and catch back up with the rest of the troop.

    It’s a great book by a great author.

    Great book! It details the L&C journey, but also does a great job with Jefferson's involvement in the preparation.

    You can also see the lewis in Clark documentary by ken burns with Stephen Ambrose as a commentor on netflix. Very interesting with lots of neat pics. Plus for the less-educated, watching a 15 hour documentary is easier than reading a book:no

    great read about American history. I read it when I was living outside Bozeman, Mt 15 years ago. I visitied the L&C caverns west of town to see where they got off the Missouri and spent the winter before moving on.

    Great book!

    What they accomplished, in their time, as been equated to the successful moon shot of the 1960's. And to think, they only lost one man (Sgt Floyd),and that to what's believed now to be a ruptured appendix, is truly remarkable.

    The first time I saw the Beaverhead, or stood at 3 Forks and Pomp's Pillar, was really an emotional experience. To stand where this men stood and to still see what they saw is awe inspiring!
