This season’s first book to discuss is Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by historian Stephen E. Ambrose. In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Capt. Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Missouri River to the Rockies, over the mountains, down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean, and back. Lewis’ partner in this adventure was Capt. William Clark: together they created the first map of the trans-Mississippi West.
