Have you ever wondered what it might have been like to explore the West with Lewis and Clark? Well sign on now, the expedition's just about ready to leave, narrated by Captain Lewis's dog, Seaman. Prepare yourself for adventure and danger as Seaman leads us through Indian Territory where he is mistaken for a bear, gets in a fight with a killer beaver, and saves the entire expedition from being trampled to death by a rampaging buffalo. It's fun to see this historical trek through the eyes of a dog, a dog who sometimes slips into nineteenth century words and phrases to tell his story!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003-2004)
