Mar 30, epg rated it really liked it Shelves: He wanted to know what lay in the remote, unexplored regions west of the Mississippi. But mostly this is a story of courage and determination.
I like the direct, factual feel of the narrative. It makes me believe this is truly how it was. Still, it doesn't read like a text book. There's enough storytelling to bring the tale to life. It's an enticing adventure for its intended middle-grade audience and an enjoyable, interesting read for anyone else looking for a non-fiction overview of this remarkable journey. I came away intrigued to know more.
Mar 24, Vicki rated it it was ok Shelves: Can't say Max loved this book. I think he tuned much of it out while I was reading aloud. I kind of did, too.
The writing does not flow well for a read-aloud book. Some of the names are hard to pronounce and it was challenging to keep track of where they were as they traveled; the book felt very disjointed to us, but then again, maybe we were just in bad moods?
