Product Description

Born the runt of his litter and gambled away to a rusty old riverman, the Newfoundland pup Seaman doesn't imagine his life will be marked by any kind of glory beyond chasing down rats. But when he meets Captain Meriwether Lewis, Seaman finds himself on a path that will make history. Lewis is just setting off on his landmark search for the Northwest Passage, and he takes Seaman along. Sharing the curiosity and strength of spirit of his new master, Seaman proves himself a valuable companion at every turn. Part history, part science and adventure through and through, The Captain's Dog the carefully researched, thrilling tale of America's greatest journey of discovery, as seen through the keen, compassionate eyes of a remarkable dog.

    I thought this book was very educational but it was not at all what I expected of the author. The good part about the book was that it taught you a lot of facts about the journey of Lewis and Clark that average people wouldn't know. Over all I would recommend this to a person trying to learn about the adventure of Lewis and Clark but not to a person trying to read a good and suspenseful story.

    I was very disappointed in this book! My Husband and I read aloud to our three young children and while reading this book, parts had to be omitted because of curse words or because of the way the book gave all the glory to there falls gods the "wyakin." This IS NOT A CHRISTIAN BOOK, a educational book, or even a good book.
