This is the story of great adventure - a two year harrowing journey in the time of President Thomas Jefferson along the Missouri and Columbia rivers, over the Rocky Mountains, in search of a navigable waterway to the Pacific Ocean. A selection of journal entries, organised by topics, gives insight into the personalities and aspirations of the explorers and their small group of men, as well as their encounters with Native Americans.
