Product Description

In Their Own Words: Lewis and Clark tells the exciting story of the lives of these explorers using the journals they kept on their journey west.

William Clark's journal entry for May 14, 1804, marks the day that Lewis and Clark set out on their two-year journey from St. Louis, Missouri, to the Pacific Ocean and back again. During their voyage of discovery, Lewis and Clark accomplished many exciting things. Did you know that the Lewis and Clark expedition:

  • had the first Fourth of July celebration west of the Mississippi?
  • covered over 8,000 miles?
  • discovered more than 100 animals new to science?
  • was joined by a Native American woman named Sacagawea?
Hear Lewis and Clark's story as if you were really there.

Editorial Reviews

Acclaim for Helen Keller and Abraham Lincoln:

In Their Own Words biographies focus on famous people who left a record of their own lives. Beginning with an explanation of the difference between primary and secondary sources, Sullivan seamlessly interweaves information about his subject with excerpts from primary sources. In the case of Helen Keller, Sullivan uses her autobiographical works; for Lincoln, he draws on speeches and letters. Both Keller and Lincoln have been covered in numerous biographies for young people (Sullivan's own Picturing Lincoln was published last fall), but these volumes are worthwhile. The short chapters, large print, simple vocabulary, straightforward narrative, and attractive illustrations, as well as the addition of the subjects' own words, make them fine choices for early-grade biographies. They fit nicely between David Adler's Picture Book Biography series books and more challenging volumes such as Russell Freedman's classic Lincoln: A Photobiography (1987).
--Booklist


... These may not be unique biographies, but they are still well written, fast moving, and highly readable, squeezed into a small format that should appeal to many students. Both books feature black-and-white photos and reproductions, a useful index, a short bibliography of primary and secondary sources, and a short list of further readings, along with places to contact for further information. Certainly much has been written about how these two figures and many libraries will find their shelves already well stocked. Those needing more materials, however, will find these to be solid choices.
