    One thought on “Meriwether: A Novel of Meriwether Lewis and the Lewis & Clark Expedition”

    1. This book grabbed me within the first few pages. If history classes were taught like this, I suspect many of us would have taken a greater interest in our founding fathers. The author was able to bring to life these great figures that dominate American history. The first chapters of the book capture who Lewis was and his struggles to become a man, and what made him the best man for the job of leading the expedition. When Lewis & Clark finally begin their journey, the author gives a detailed [...]

    2. Pleasantly surprised by the historical background to the story. Put into context a bunch of the events of the early American history. Had picked up the book at a used book store for a throwaway read but keep the authors name for to see if I can find any of his other titles.

    3. Since I knew absolutely nothing about the Lewis and Clark expedition except a footnote from history class, I was interested in reading this to get the 'real' story. This was a great book, and really made you appreciate all that they went through, the preparation, what happened afterwards, etc. I really learned a lot from reading this, and have a greater appreciation for the expedition and how much these men (and woman) helped our country establish boundaries and expand.

    4. Another book club book that I never would have picked up on my own. And I loved it! It's kind of a man's book, but that's okay--I stepped outside my comfort zone a bit. As I read this, I kept telling my husband about the journey: "Now they're here, now they're here." It was all very exciting. Plus, I love early America, and Thomas Jefferson obviously plays a big role in this story. Good stuff.

    5. Fascinating look at the Lewis and Clark Expedition, through the eyes of Meriwether Lewis. Mr. Nevin discusses the highs and lows of the expedition, and of Meriwether Lewis' life, including his tragic suicide.This account, as fiction, adds new life to the old story, without departing from the essential facts.

    6. Even though it was a novel it follows the story of Lewis and Clark, putting an emphasis on Lewis, Clark and their upbringings and backgrounds, the selection of the men, problems along the journey that they faced, and the aftermath until Lewis' death.

    7. Fantastic novel. Mr Nevin has created yet another masterpiece reading of the old west regarding the greatest expedition ever undertaken in the history of America!
