Exciting, action-packed account of the expedition to chart the vast unknown lands of the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. A perilous journey made by undaunted men who faced hostile Indians, prairie fires, floods, heat and thirst, illness, famine, sub-zero weather, and other perils. A "thrilling account of one of the most magnificent expeditions in all history ... absorbing and inspirational from start to finish."--New York Times Book Review.
