This is, without a doubt, the very best history book I have ever read. Amborse did a masterful job of putting you with Lewis & Clark on this fantastic journey.

A riveting account of Lewis and Clark's journey through the newly acquired Louisiana territory, from conception to completion, focusing primarily on Meriwether Lewis.

A pretty good read, the author paints the picture of what it would be like to just head off into uncharted territory. They thought they might find Mastodons! Very clear account of how a 18th century slave-holding Virgina gentleman views the world around him. Tells the story you don't know about Lewis' life after the exploration. Some of the verbiage is direct from their journals and can be tedious.
