Annotation Run The Rivers With Lewis and Clark is an accurate historical account of the journey of young America's Corps of Discovery. The author, Cynthia Compton, is an Idaho school teacher who was looking for a resource which could be used to supplement her Idaho History lessons and present the story in a condensed, yet concise manner. Mrs. Compton found that there really wasn't any such thing available, so decided to research and write the story herself. Drawing on the original journals as well as the research and writings of many Lewis and Clark scholars, this book is perfect for students and families. Run The Rivers details the origins of the trip from the forward and westward looking dream of President Thomas Jefferson to an explanation of The Louisiana Purchase and an exhilarating telling of the trip itself. This book is a great resource for classroom teachers as well as a great read for anyone wanting to learn about one of the greatest exploratory expeditions ever undertaken. For junior and senior high readers.
