Undaunted Courage, Stephen Ambrose

The Lewis and Clark expedition. Fascinating, especially the descriptions of the things that no longer exist, such as the huge migrating herds of animals and the cultures and practices of indigenous people they encountered.

This was a terrific book!

Another great book about Lewis and Clark is "Sacajawea" by Anna Lee Waldo. It is a historical novel, but filled with facts - there's just not a lot of insight in history regarding Sacajawea's feelings, even her LIFE. So that's why it's considered a historical novel. But I couldn't put it down, and that's what led me to read "Undaunted Courage" by Ambrose.

Skeletons on the Zahara: A True Story of Survival by Dean King. It’s the story of the wreck of a British merchant ship on the West African coast in 1815, and how the crew was captured and sold into slavery, and how a handful of the men eventually made it back to England to tell their story. It’s a real turn-pager!

I just ordered this! I love books about ship wrecks anyway, and the era of "tall ships" and this one sounds very good. Thank you!
