His brief from the president, Thomas Jefferson, was to explore the land stretching west of the Mississippi, recently purchased from Napoleon.

It was completely uncharted territory- a wild, vast land ruled by the Indians, never before experienced by a white man. Charismatic and brave, Lewis was the perfect choice to pioneer the western wilderness. Undaunted Courage is the definitive account of this momentous journey, presenting the American West as Lewis saw it - savage, awesome and pristinely beautiful. Full of colourful 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 stories of all time.

A sweeping tale combing drama, tragedy, danger and diplomacy, Undaunted Courage is an outstanding work of scholarship and a thrilling adventure.
