Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's "Voyage of Discovery" is one of the most complex and exciting episodes in all of American history. Each day of the 28-month journey in the early 1800s introduced the crew to unknown flora and fauna, uncharted bends in the rivers, and unprecedented meetings with dozens of American Indian tribes. Thomas Schmidt's masterful choices of historic, cultural, and scientific detail; journal excerpts; and narrative pace season this program with intelligence and understated enthusiasm. Separate voices read short selections from Lewis and Clark's voluminous journal entries. But it's Schmidt's own voice that ties together the tales of buffalo dances and encounters with grizzly bears and makes this listening experience a perfect introduction to Lewis and Clark's great journey.
