This reads better than the official Lewis and Clark journals, but suffers from repetition, especially in regards to the weather, hunting success and mosquitoes.

Book arrived in good condition. The journal was interesting but does not add human aspect of an incredible journey, mostly factual in basis, how many deer they shot each day, how many miles traveled, etc..
Zeleence
A true insight of a remarkable man in his own words while he traveled with Lewis and Clark on the Voyage of Discovery.
Vispel
It is interesting but it consists mainly of daily log notes of about 3-5 sentences each. Not set in a story line. But, considering what these adventurers did, it is a great insight into the trip.
VizoRRR
Good value and interesting reading
Blueshaper
Good book and recommended. The book is written with a cross-review of other journals and researched materials relating to the journey.

I was treated to a talk by one of Patrick's decendents at our local library in Washington, Pa. and searched for this book. AMAZON.com had it. It was delivered in new condition... I don't believe it was EVER opened!!!Great and easy reading... Goes well with BICYCLING THE LEWIS & CLARK TRAIL... Thank You!!!:-)
This was all I expected after reading about what it contained. It fits really well with the other journals from expedition members. It was in excellent condition too.
