"Unduanted Courage" is the story of a heroic and legendary man, and the saga of a great nation creating itself. In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson chose Captain Meriwether Lewis to lead the first government-backed exploration of the vast and unknown western territory of what would become part of the United States. Lewis was the perfect choice.

The bestselling author of D-Day combines his extraordinary writing skill with previously unknown information about weather, terrain, science, native peoples, and the medicine of the time to describe in detail everything the Lewis and Clark expedition encountered in its quest to open the American frontier. Illustrations & maps. Some shelf wear and scuffs to the dust jacket.
