GONE WEST Bold Adventures of American Explorers and Pioneers

by | Read by Jim Weiss

Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Jim Weiss infuses facts about the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery, and the growth of the Transcontinental Railroad with a dose of his signature storytelling—and the result is a vibrant discourse on a period of American history. Weiss has a knack for bringing characters to life and for choosing distinct moments to dramatize: Thomas Jefferson explains to a flabbergasted James Monroe why he had to convince Napoleon to sell the territory of Louisiana. William Clark runs the rapids of the Columbia River in a pirogue. A rampaging bear refuses to be stopped by explorers. Weiss brings history to life.
