Read full description of the books Journal of Augustus Pelletier: The Lewis and Clark Expedition, 1804:I really loved the descriptions, especially in the tone of wonder for this basically untouched scenery. It really felt like someone who was seeing these amazing places for the first time, and felt as much awe as the rest of us would. It also didn't play down the difficulties of the travel (hunger, terrain, fear, etc). I also loved that they made an effort to state the differences between the various tribes they pass by, not just saying 'Oh! Natives!' and leaving it at that. It wasn't just stating they were different either, but making note of specific things that made up their lives (dwellings, hunting practices, etc).
I also love that they didn't take away from the importance of Sacajawea (a legitimate fear, since this book is apparently written for a boy audience, and boys wouldn't read books where girls do anything important *sarcastic sigh and eye roll*). She wasn't the main character, but she was still one of the most important.
