Kate McMullan and Adrienne Yorinks. Delectable period details, surprising facts, and classic moments keep the story lively. An inspiring journey. This is an excellent book on Lewis and Clark, written by one of George Shannon's descendents. It is the fictionalized journal of George Shannon, a teenager who participated in the famous Corps of Discovery as they explored previously uncharted land west of the Mississippi River. This is compelling reading, historically accurate, action filled, and based on George Shannon's actual journals. I like reading about Capts. Lewis and Clark in the Rocky Mountains. I Repeat: the best book in the new world!!
The youngest member of the crew, and an ancestor of the author, he was a spirited, chatty companion, and the friendly voice recreated in this fictional journal will make readers happy to join him on the journey west, across the Rockies, to the Pacific, where he encounters mosquitoes, bears, snakes, Indian war parties, treacherous rivers, harsh winters, and the Rocky Mountains. Shannon was not mentioned often in Lewis and Clark’s journals, so McMullan has embellished the facts to create a lively first-person.
George has no real experience either at sea or in hunting, but he has a spark that captures Captain Lewis. It also helps George that Seaman, the huge dog belonging to Lewis, takes an instant liking to George.
