Summary
In 1804 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were sent by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the largely uncharted western territory of North America, and thus became critical figures in America's expansion and major contributors to its scientific scholarship.They observed and documented scores of animals, including the Great Plains wolf, mule deer, prairie dogs, grizzly bears, and salmon.Several species and subspecies of mammals, birds, and fish previously unknown to science were recorded for the first time; the information gathered would serve as the basis of scientific study for years to come.Collected here are stunning photographs by William Munoz that catalog the diverse array of wildlife witnessed by Lewis and Clark.Nature lovers and history buffs alike will be intrigued by this unusual account of the journey, whose bicentennial will soon be celebrated.Route maps, suggestions for further reading, chronology of animals sighted, index.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-8. The coming bicentennial of the Corps of Discovery (1804-1806), better known as the Lewis and Clark expedition, has already inspired a number of books, but few as handsome as this one. The spacious page layouts, beautiful illustrations, and well-written text help ensure that this historically significant story will be read and enjoyed. Patent explains that President Jefferson sent out the Corps in hopes that the explorers would find a navigable waterway to the Pacific, establish good relations with Native Americans, and observe, describe, and collect specimens of animals "unknown to science." In this book, readers follow the expedition westward from the Mississippi, across the plains and the mountains to the Pacific, and back again. Patent tells the broader story well, but the strength of this book is its focus on the animals discovered by members of the expedition, as recorded in the journals of Lewis and Clark. Appended are the author's notes, which provide some of her sources and recommending resources for further reading, and a list of 121 species of vertebrate animals, indicating when and where the explorers first saw them. In addition to a few maps and reproductions of period paintings, Munoz's excellent color photographs of animals, landscape, artifacts, and sites offer vivid pictures of the world explored by the Corps of Discovery.
