Enslow's 100-Plus-Page Book Explores Lewis & Clark Saga

On May 14, 1804, Lewis and Clark began their epic journey from St. Louis to Oregon's Pacific coast. The expedition's extraordinary saga remains a benchmark of American history and a touchstone for many Social Studies curricula. For young readers looking for a "way in" to understand Lewis and Clark's challenges and achievements, Enslow Publishers' Lewis and Clark: Exploring the American West offers a solid overview. Author Kate Robinson's 112-page work provides age-appropriate text, outstanding historical illustrations, and primary source documents essential for useful research. This reliable text, part of Enslow's "Great Explorers of the World" series, is available in a library-bound edition directly from Enslow Publishers for $23.95. The price represents a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for the book. The work can also be purchased from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

Today would have been Meriwether Lewis' birthday

If you have an interest in learning more about Meriwether Lewis, or perhaps hearing songs that were performed during that time period, then Enslow has some books and a CD for you.

A Musical Journey in the Footsteps of Lewis and Clark is a CD containing those songs. As School Library Journal stated, "This recording will help students understand the importance of music in the Lewis and Clark expedition . . ."
Published in 2010, Enslow introduces a middle school book about Lewis and Clark in its Great Explorers of the World series. This title describes their journey west to the Pacific Ocean.
A title for the elementary reader, Lewis and Clark, was written by Arlene Bourgeois Molzahn.
