Lewis and Clark Travel Up the Missouri River
Explorers in a New World, Part Seven
Class set order code: 9172S
When the United States was new, much of the western half of it was still unknown. President Thomas Jefferson sent Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to lead an expedition to explore as much of the wilderness as they could. The group headed up the Missouri River, but it was a much harder journey than they expected. The wild Missouri threatened to destroy them all, but Lewis and Clark were determined to succeed.
