Pathways: Grade 5 Lewis and Clark: Opening the American West Tradebook
Author(s): K/H (Pathways)
The journals of the Lewis and Clark expedition paint a picture of life in the American West 200 years ago. Lewis and Clark and several members of their 1804 Corps of Discovery expedition made detailed notes of what they did every day. They made maps, sketched plants, described the weather, and even recorded what they ate and how they ate it. These important documents of American history describe the wildlife, plants, and people of the West in the days before European settlers came.
