When Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery set out in the spring of 1804, they had chosen to go on an unprecedented, extremely dangerous journey. It would be the adventure of a lifetime. Unlike others in the group, two key members did not choose to join the hazardous expedition: York, Clark's slave, and Sacajawea, considered to be the property of Charbonneau, the expedition's translator. The unique knowledge and skills Sacajawea and York had were essential to the success of the trip. The dual stories of these two outsiders, who earned their way into the inner core of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, shed new light on one of the most exciting and important undertakings in American history. Claire Rudolf Murphy is the author of many books, including Children of the Gold Rush, which School Library Journal lauded as a "positive, satisfying immersion into a little-known subject." After living in Alaska for twenty-four years, Claire returned to her hometown of Spokane, Washington, with her husband and two children. She felt drawn to Sacajawea's and York's stories when she started hiking around the region and realized that she had grown up only 105 miles away from the Lewis and Clark trail and about 400 miles from where Sacajawea and York voted on where to build their winter fort. Higgins Bond illustrated The Seven Seas: Exploring the World Ocean for Walker & Company. School Library Journal commented that her "realistic ... vivid [illustrations in The Seven Seas] envelop and transport readers to these waters." Higgins earned her BFA from the Memphis College of Art. She has illustrated numerous children's books and created commemorative stamps for the U.S. Postal Service. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

"Thomas Jefferson's Corps of Discovery included Captains Lewis and Clark and a crew of 28 men to chart a route from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean. All the crew but one volunteered for the mission. York, the enslaved man taken on the journey, did not choose to go. Slaves did not have choices. York's contributions to the expedition, however, were invaluable. The captains came to rely on York's judgement, determination, and peacemaking role with the American Indian nations they encountered. But as York's independence and status rose on the journey, the question remained what status he would carry once the expedition was over. This is his story."--Provided by publisher.

A 150-pound Newfoundland dog teams with Lewis & Clark for an edge-of-your-seat middle grade adventure. It is 1804, the year that Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and the Corps of Discovery set out for their now-legendary exploration of the Louisiana Purchase. With no maps and little idea what wonders and dangers lie ahead, Seaman, a 150-pound Newfoundland dog, proves to be one of the most valuable members of the Corps. In the face of starvation, Seaman catches and retrieves game, and his intimidating size and teeth protect the small band of explorers – from Native American raiders and even a ferocious grizzly bear! As the bond and mutual trust between Seaman and the Corp grows, they're confident that nothing—not even raging waters and towering mountains—will stop them from reaching the West Coast. This thrilling fictional account of Lewis and Clark's expedition with the Corps of Discovery, Seaman, and eventually Sacagawea, is full of accurate details drawn from Lewis's own diary entries and will draw readers into one of the most exciting chapters in American history.
