The rare and remarkable story of the first successful heroic coast to coast journey of white explorers in America. Ambrose is a remarkable modern historian. Hidden in these pages is the wilderness of America that has been mostly destroyed. And yet with it comes a hope and a desire to enjoy and conserve the remnant that remains (sound like a familiar story?). The insight into the masculine journey is incredible. Well worth the read.
The following is the description from Amazon:
In this sweeping adventure story, Stephen E. Ambrose, the bestselling author od D-Day, presents the definitive account of one of the most momentous journeys in American history. Ambrose follows the Lewis and Clark Expedition from Thomas Jefferson’s hope of finding a waterway to the Pacific, through the heart-stopping moments of the actual trip, to Lewis’s lonely demise on the Natchez Trace. Along the way, Ambrose shows us the American West as Lewis saw it — wild, awsome, and pristinely beautiful. Undaunted Courage is a stunningly told action tale that will delight readers for generations.
