Stephen E. Ambrose
In this sweeping adventure story, Stephen E. Ambrose, the bestselling author od D-Day, presents the definitive account of one of the most momentous journeys in American history. Ambrose follows the Lewis and Clark Expedition from Thomas Jefferson's hope of finding a waterway to the Pacific, through the heart-stopping moments of the actual trip, to Lewis's lonely demise on the Natchez Trace. Along the way, Ambrose shows us the American West as Lewis saw it -- wild, awsome, and pristinely beautiful. Undaunted Courage is a stunningly told action tale that will delight readers for generations.

My first Stephen Ambrose book. Reading about history is weird because you think you know the ending, but this was a very compelling story! Written as a biography of Lewis, I learned a lot about the man and the expedition from Ambrose's story. Ambrose went to many of the same places Lewis and Clark explored so he gives detailed descriptions of what they saw. Excellent book from a great story teller!
