  1. I read this right after I read the What Was the Lewis and Clark Expedition by Judith St George I found that the two worked really well together Of Courage Undaunted is mean to be a non fiction viewpoint of the Lewis and Clark expedition told in an easy way for students I read this aloud for a broad range of children from 13 years down to 4 and then I would have them narrate to me what just took place in the section we read They all could tell me what was happening and even some of the slower par [...]



  2. I really enjoyed learning about the interactions the crew had with the many American Indian tribes they encountered Very interesting Not much detail is given on Sacagawea but enough to make me want to read about this fascinating young woman Good read.


  3. I really like this book and so did my kids It s a strait forward kid friendly version of the Lewis and Clark expedition told through the lens of the journals done by the two explorers It covers the challenges and hardships in both directions It seemed to be pretty objective in that it didn t have an agenda or was trying to make you think a certain way about Lewis and Clark.Another reviewer mentioned that she didn t like the way Sacajawea was portrayed Here s the thing s history History books sho [...]


  4. I found Of Courage Undaunted to be a serviceable account of the Lewis and Clark Expedition for children My boys, ages 11 and 9, enjoyed sections of it but in general Daugherty s writing style did not engage them I can best describe it as informational yet detached I couldn t feel the author s enthusiasm for the subject in his voice, so it seemed flat It shared great vignettes of being chased up trees by grizzlies, hunting on the plains, and encountering flocks of buffalo so large the men would h [...]


  5. Of Courage Undaunted was supposed to be a school read aloud After waiting for it week after week in the library hold line to no avail, I eventually purchased a copy I tried to read it aloud for several days but for some reason I just don t think it lends itself to reading out loud The kids agreed So Sarah looked at the pictures and sounded out bits here and there, and Hannah and Jack read it to themselves That meant I had to read it too so that I could discuss it with them, and it was ok I didn [...]


  6. Whimsical poetry begins each chapter of this factual accounting of the Lewis and Clark Discovery Corps expedition to the Pacific Ocean that was commissioned by President Jefferson.There, I fit it in one sentence Two tips 1 Be sure to note the dates as you read, or it might escape your notice that it took 2 months to go from one camp to the other 2 This is not a literary narrative ala the historical fiction genre that is so popular with modern readers Rather, this is non fiction, historic account [...]


  7. The kids were about to rebel when I forced them to stay put We are about half way through right now and it s been a good read We stopped at a Lewis and Clark site on our way out west Montana, Pompey s Pillar and I had wanted to read this aloud while we journeyed, but something about sitting in the front seat on a road trip makes me so darn lazy I really enjoyed this I m embarrassed to say that it s the first book I ve read about the Lewis and Clark expedition I learned a lot about Sacajawea, Lew [...]


  8. Read it for school, nough said.Pretty amazing, though Only, like, three people died on their trip Only three God s amazingAnd, may I just add, that Sacajawea is sooooo portrayed wrong She had a child was she married book wasn t clear , quiet and emotionless, pockmarked, and disappeared into the wild again with her son after Lewis and Clark could get back home on their own Movies like Night At The Museum got it so wrong.Three stars Very easy read, and chalk full of info.


  9. This book just didn t have any excitement or personality in it There was literally one time I laughed when I was reading it It was so flat that I quit reading it halfway through The only reason I didn t only give it an I don t like it star is because I laughed that one time.


  10. I read this as a read aloud to my 6th grader We both liked it So amazing what the Lewis Clark party did I liked how the book was about the whole party, and not just one person And only one person died the whole 2 year trip I can t help but feel God was watching over them.


  11. This was a good read Daugherty tells of Lewis and Clark s perilous journey across America While writing in detail what most already know about their expedition, he also tells of some little known facts.


  12. reading this as a read aloud for school for my 7 and under crowd it s a bit of a stretch, but I like that it s flexing their mental muscles, causing them to make associations with past school subjects, and introducing them to an entirely different world than their own.


  13. We my 11 year old and 7 year old and I nread this for a homeschool study of Lewis and Clark and didn t love it Interesting facts and some very good descriptions of the journey But overall it didn t hold our attention well.




  14. Read to my kids for school Good information but a bit dry We stuck with it though and it served its purpose.


  15. Somewhat dated account of the Lewis Clark expedition The short version they encountered lots of bears and smoked many peace pipes.Better to read abridged edits of the original papers.



  16. I thought it was pretty boring because it talked about was how they traded with the indians on their trip I thought it was funny that they ate dogs.


  17. I wsa impressed with the difficulties overcome by Lewis and Clark The book provided insteresting insite to the Jefferson administration and to the lives of the two leaders of this effort.
