Audible Editor Reviews

The expedition commissioned by Thomas Jefferson and led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark from 1804 to 1806 is a well-known venture to chart and explore the northwestern area of what became the United States. Here is an account in their own words of that journey, from the notes taken by Lewis and Clark. The audio contains countless remarkable stories, however it is very near to the original source document and Kevin Stilwell, who performs the journals steadily and unwaveringly, powers through the sometimes challenging accounts with journalistic gravity, rewarding any Lewis and Clark fanatic or student of early American history with a valuable and intimate look at one the country's most renowned expeditions and it's first impressions of the land.
