The journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark remain the single most important document in the history of American exploration. Through these tales of adventure, edited by American Book Award nominee Landon Jones, we see the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and western rivers the way Lewis and Clark first observed them: majestic, pristine, uncharted, and awe-inspiring.

Landon Jones has selected the most memorable journal entries left behind by Lewis and Clark, and edited them for all readers, those steeped in the lore of the expedition, as well as newcomers to the unforgettable journey. Download and start listening now!

    " The notes from the expedition - fascinating, and what humane men they appeared to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Selby | 1/18/2010

    " Every American should be acquainted with the journals of Lewis and Clark. I listened to the audio book of this excerpt. The narration greatly enhanced the experience and enjoyment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 11/19/2009

    " Was hoping for a narrative of the journey, was a little disappointed that it is mostly diary/journal entries from the journey. Still good though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 6/21/2009

    " I guess technically I haven't read this book, since I couldn't drag myself further than the fifth or sixth chapter. I'm sure it's rich with information, but it is, um well. . . boring. Sorry. Maybe you loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 10/1/2008

    " Well edited and fun to hear Lewis and Clark's letters read. Unfortunately, there isn't much explanation of what is going on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Anderson | 6/26/2008

    " Very interesting accounts to read of the journey. However it would have been far more interesting if there were contextual or background descriptions for the journal notes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 10/2/2006

    " A must read. First encounters with grizzlies,and native Americans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 8/11/2006

    " This book was interesting but I would have gotten into it more if it was written like a novel instead of like a diary. The entries, of course, didn't flow because they were written different days so sometimes I had a difficult time paying attention. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 5/24/2005

    " I was really disappointed in this book. It is excerpts from the diaries of Lewis and Clark and lacked context. "
