With characteristic humor and honesty, Stephen E. Ambrose tells the story of America’s first major military venture overland to the Pacific: the expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. In the early 1800s, dozens of trips searching for a water route to the Pacific had all been bitterly disappointed. They had failed because no man could survive on the flat, desolate landscape of the Great Plains without great game and water—foodstuffs that are now found in abundance along this epic pathway.

Lewis had never been west of the Mississippi River, but it didn’t take long for him to realize that if he succeeded in exploring and claiming this land as Jefferson’s dream, he would need more than just his instincts. He needed knowledge to guide him on the dangerous journey across an unknown wilderness and kill off potential threats.

American history is replete with stories of men, women, and children braving new frontiers. Some even braved the dangers of a strange new country with no knowledge of how they were to live there or what would happen to them if they arrived safely. One such pioneer was Captain Meriwether Lewis, who led an expedition through uncharted territory to find the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

About Undaunted Courage Book

‘This was much more than a bunch of guys out on an exploring and collecting expedition. This was a military expedition into hostile territory. In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson selected his secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a pioneering voyage across the Great Plains and into the Rockies. It was completely uncharted territory, a wild, vast land ruled by the Indians. Charismatic and brave, Lewis was a perfect choice, and he experienced the savage North American continent before any other white man. UNDAUNTED COURAGE is the tale of a hero, but it is also a tragedy. Lewis may have received a hero’s welcome on his return to Washington in 1806, but his discoveries did not match the president’s fantasies of sweeping, fertile plains ripe for the taking.

Feeling the expedition had been a failure, Lewis took to drink and piled up debts. Full of colorful characters – Jefferson, the president obsessed with conquering the west; William Clark, the rugged frontiersman; Sacagawea, the Indian girl who accompanied the expedition; Drouillard, the French-Indian hunter – this is one of the great adventure stories of all time, and it shot to the top of the US bestseller charts. Drama, suspense, danger, and diplomacy combine with romance and personal tragedy making UNDAUNTED COURAGE an outstanding work of scholarship and a thrilling adventure.
