    The newest recording by Jim Weiss is Gone West: Bold Adventures of American Explorers and Pioneers. In this recording, Weiss recounts the stories of the Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark's travels west. He talks of Sacagawea and her part in the success of their trip.

    It has been twenty years since I've studies American History and so much information seems to have disappeared from my memory in those intervening years. As my children learn, I learn with them. It sometimes feels as if there is so much that I never really learned to begin with! I was particularly struck by Sacagawea's story and her part as Jim Weiss recounts the tale of her part in the expedition. I appreciated how seamless the storytelling seems for this cd. Weiss begins with Thomas Jefferson and what he wanted to purchase--and what he ultimately did purchase for the United States. The story transitions to Lewis and Clark's travels. History is a story. It draws us in and we learn from it when we realize what a story it is!

    On these recordings Weiss has a way of telling a story and the relevant details in a way that make them easy to understand, process, and remember. I look forward to listening to Greathall Productions' recordings for the next few years as my children each grow and learn.

    If studying the Westward Expansion is anywhere on the horizon of your studies, I'd recommend this cd. It's especially appropriate for grades 1-5. It's a great way to pass the time while you and your kids are in the car!

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this cd for review from Greathall Productions.
