Seaman, a highly intelligent
and sensitive dog that accompanied the Corps of Discovery, introduces
youngsters to this exciting epic of United States history. The chapters
are based on accounts in Lewis's journals, from which a relevant quote
closes each fictional episode. The focus is on the canine's encounters
with other animals: squirrels, bear, buffalo, beaver. Attractive, realistic
paintings illustrate the book, giving a feel for the period and, most
importantly, a visual personality to Seaman. Nancy Collins-Warner, Neill
Public Library, Pullman, WA
This competent and
attractive title presents a unique approach to the Lewis and Clark Expedition,
which is receiving much publishing attention as its bicentennial approaches.
Patent encapsulates the journey of the Corps of Discovery while focusing
on the major wildlife species that the voyagers encountered. The buffalo,
prairie wolf, coyote, and grizzly are given extensive treatment, and the
prairie dog, antelope, mule deer, and several bird species are discussed.
Munoz's fine photographic work in full color is featured on almost every
page, making this an inviting introduction to the expedition, or to learn
about the rich contribution made, particularly by Lewis, to the identification
and description of western North America's prodigious wildlife. The "To
Learn More" section includes seminal sources and Web sites, and the
"Chronology of Animal Discoveries New to Science" provides many
possibilities for curriculum development or enthusiastic young naturalists.

Plants on the Trail with Lewis and Clark (Lewis & Clark Expedition)
Clarion Books (March 24, 2003)
A companion volume
to Animals on the Trail with Lewis and Clark. An excellent two-page map
shows camps and landmarks along the route of the explorers from the (current)
Iowa/Illinois/Missouri border north and west to the Pacific Ocean at what
is now the Washington/Oregon border. Lewis and Clark led the army expedition
to explore and map more than 2000 miles of North America, find a water
route across the country, discuss peaceful trade with the Indian tribes,
and study and record soil and vegetation along the way. Lewis's knowledge
of plants and their medicinal properties and Clark's familiarity with
waterway navigation and land surveying led to the overwhelming success
of this amazing journey. The explorers filled journals with carefully
detailed descriptions of various plant species in their natural settings
as well as how they used them as building material, food, and medicines.
Patent gives examples that attest to the cleverness and mechanical abilities
of the explorers and to the aid they received from the Nez Perce, Mandan,
and other tribes. Good-quality, full-color photos and reproductions clearly
extend the text. A listing of plant specimens collected and dried by the
pair that can be found in the Lewis and Clark Herbarium (Philadelphia),
sources for further reading, and a thorough index are appended. The author's
knowledge of and keen interest in her subject matter is very evident in
this fascinating account that helps bring to life an amazing episode in

The history is handled
with a light touch in this Step into Reading title about the American
West, and Manders' colorful cartoon-style art is a perfect match for the
storytelling. President Jefferson asks Lewis and Clark to go west, and
"make maps, and explore rivers . . . collect plants and draw wild
animals . . . send presents." Comic scenes show the explorers trying
to catch buffalo and grizzly bears to send to the president, but they
settle on the cute, little, wild dog, which scouts take back to Jefferson
together with a huge load of plants, skins, and animals. Hazel Rochman
