Lewis and Clark and Me

The Lewis and Clark Expedition had one special member of the team: a huge Newfoundland dog that Meriwether Lewis named "Seaman". How do you think the dog felt about exploring 7000 miles of wilderness with 33 men in the early 1800s? What did he like best? Was he ever hurt? What kinds of jobs did he have? What did he eat? What scary things happened? The best way to learn the answers to these questions is to ask the dog! Fortunately, Lewis and Clark and Me just happens to be written by Seaman himself. Settle down under the covers with this dog story, and you'll learn a lot of history in the process!
