Travel with the explorers who in 1804 set out from the Missouri River to help expand the nation to the Pacific coast. Discover rivers, waterfalls, animals, and plants that were unknown to people east of the Mississippi River. Learn how people sailed through rapids, crossed rivers, and traveled over mountains. Meet new tribes of American Indians and find out how a U.S. President's dream came true. This book describes in detail the lives of adventurous people who stepped out of their everyday lives and who encountered the people and places of the West when they were thought of as wild. Each book in the series uses reconstruction illustrations and photographs along with clear text and fact boxes to bring the story of our nation to life.
