In college I started out as a History Major.....I ended up going into Accounting and Marketing eventually.....but never lost my love of History.
Ah but I diverge from my story.....anyway......the above book is about Lewis and Clark's incredible journey during the founding of our country. I read the book a few years ago and was absolutely dumbstruck by what they had to endure.
The Lewis and Clark trail follows what is now HWY 93 thru Idaho and Montana.
The Salmon River area is where Sacajawea, their young Indian guide was born. We visited the small museum that is a tribute to this brave woman and the men she led.
I believe young people of today should read books like the one above....so they can truly understand what it took to make this great country of ours.
Without Lewis and Clark's expedition none of the pioneering of the West would have happened.
The above are some examples of the pioneer original abodes that are still standing in these wonderful states. Almost every homestead has an original pioneer outbuilding on it .......they have truly stood the test of time.
Do you think we could do this today........I'm not to sure!!!!!
