As Far As The Eye Can Reach:
Lewis and Clark's Westward Quest

Ages 9-12; Random House Books for Young Readers; January 2003

The Story: In 1803, at President Jefferson's request, Captains Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery set out to explore beyond the newly purchased land of the Louisiana Territory to the western end of the continent. By the time the Corps returned years later, everyone believed they were dead. But the men had survived and with their long journey, they staked a claim to the West for the new country, America.

Inspiration: "Explorers have always been one of Elizabeth Cody Kimmel's favorite subjects. Reading the journals of Lewis and Clark, she became captivated with the time when America was wild, unexplored, and almost entirely unknown."
