Item Description...
Provides background information and historical details about the Lewis and Clark Expedition through the adventures of Seaman, the Newfoundland dog who served the Corps of Discovery as a hunter, retriever, and guard dog.

Publishers Description
Meet Seaman, the Newfoundland dog who joined the Lewis and Clark expedition into the uncharted western wilderness. Seaman was much more than the faithful companion of Captain Lewis. Seaman risked his life many times and served the Corps of Discovery as a hunter, retriever, and guard dog. This richly detailed account of the expedition includes its planning, its adventures and discoveries, and its aftermath. During the trek from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean and back, every member of the Corps of Discovery suffered from hunger, insect bites, injuries, and close calls with death. Noted children's author Laurence Pringle follows the expedition closely and highlights the adventures of Seaman as they appear in the journals of Lewis and Clark. Pringle also offers evidence, first revealed in 2000, about what happened to Seaman after the journey's end. With intriguing sidebars, historical illustrations, journal excerpts, and original art, this account of the Corps of Discovery features the remarkable dog that was the expedition's most unusual member.

Great tale about Lewis and Clark  Jan 7, 2008
I used this book in my classroom to teach about Lewis and Clarks journey. My students loved reading from the point of view of the dog, Seaman. This is a great book to use with kids who enjoy animal stories.
An Exciting Book to Read  Jan 5, 2006
The Dog of Discovery was an exciting book to read. The main characters are Lewis, Clark and Lewis' dog Seamen. The main idea of the story is how Seamen helps Lewis and Clark on their expedition on the Missouri River. I think this book is exciting in parts. Some of the other parts were a little bit dull. One of the exciting parts was when seamen warned Lewis about a bear that was snooping around the camp. There are a lot of Indians involved in this story. One of the dull parts of the story was when they were going through the mountains. It was dull because the crew pulled the boat up the river day after day. There are not a lot of sad parts in this book. That is why The Dog of Discovery is an exciting book to read.
