Told from the point of view of a dog that accompanies Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the Pacific Northwest, Smith puts a unique spin on one of America's greatest journeys of discovery.
Born the runt of his litter and gambled away to a rusty old river man, the Newfoundland pup Seaman doesnít imagine his life will be marked by any kind of glory. But when he meets Captain Meriwether Lewis, Seaman finds himself on a path that will make history. Lewis is setting off on his landmark search for the Northwest Passage, and he takes Seaman along. Sharing the curiosity and spirit of his new master, the intrepid dog proves himself a valuable companion at every turn.
Part history, part scienceóand all adventureóthis is the thrilling tale of Americaís greatest journey of discovery.
