The Captains Dog: My Journey with the Lewis and Clark Tribe by Roland Smith

Ive always had an interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition but it wasnt until I started working at Washington States Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment that Ive had access to so many different books on the subject.

I love animals and I loved hearing about Seaman (Captain Lewis Newfoundland dog) during the expedition so when I found this book at the Interpretive Center gift shop I had to give it a read even though its for young readers and Im an avid adult reader. It was an easy read for me but I think its a great book to get young readers into learning more about the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The book takes key moments from the expedition and is written from Seamans point of view so it simplifies it enough for young readers to be able to understand and enjoy. I think of it as one of the first steps into reading about the Lewis and Clark expedition before going into the actual journals later on.

I highly recommend this book to young and old readers who want to know more about the Lewis and Clark expedition from a fun doggy point of view.

Lewis first mentioned his dog in his journal entry of September 11, "I made my dog take as many [squirrels] each day as I had occasion for. They were fat and I thought them when fried a pleasant food. Many of these squirrels were black.
