About the Author

Before James Daugherty (1889-1974) became a noted author, he was a well-established artist having illustrated more than forty books by other authors. In Mr. Daugherty's own books, the art and text combine gusto, exuberance, rich detail and a masculine style singing a song of America. When receiving the Newbery Award in 1940 for Daniel Boone, Daugherty summed up the spirit of his major lifework: "Wit and taste, beauty and joy are as much a necessary part of the democratic heritage as economics and the utilities...Children's books are a part of that art of joy and joy in art that is the certain inalienable right of a free people." Mr. Daugherty is primarily remembered for his inspired expression of the American spirit in both visual and literary form, a spirit characterized by appreciation for the heroes of democracy. In publishing three of his titles we have painstakingly preserved his two and three color drawings so that you may enjoy his books in their original context.

22 of 25 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on March 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
I have read of courage undaunted writen by James Daughterty, the story is captivated in a 163 page book.The time frame for this story is in the 1800 and and features the main characters Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in there adventure of mapping the Westerness of America. I love this book the most because of the dates they add in all the stories, every time something happens they tell where and when it happens which is good to know if your writing a book report. The worst part of this book is the amout of pictures in it, you cant get past one page without having to look at a huge drawing. I would definitly recomend this book for people who like adventure non fiction books, and I would especially recomend this if you are one of those people who like picture books.

We are reading this book at home along with our other history reading. It gives a closer view of the challenges Lewis & Clark and their team faced being specific about the different Indian tribes and their personalities, the variety of animals they fought and ate, and the contributions of the members of the group. Both Lewis and Clark kept journals with detailed notes about their experience and many excerpts are included in the text. We have read a few books on the subject and really enjoy this one because it makes you feel like you are there with them. It's not too psychological, though, which makes it better for younger audiences. The type is large (~14pt) for younger readers, there is an itinerary, an index, and beautiful drawings.

Format: Paperback
How could two ordinary guys become some of the most important men in American history? To find out, read Of Courage Undaunted by James Daughterty.
Lewis and Clark, at the request of President Jefferson, went on an expedition to explore uncharted territory in America. Their journey west to the Pacific Ocean and back to Missouri was full of dangerous adventure, including several bear attacks. Lewis and Clark were two of the most couragous men of their time. Their near death experiences will keep you interested from cover to cover.
Although I didn't care for the beginning of the book as much because it was difficult to understand, overall I liked the book because there was a lot of action. There were some dangerous Indians, Black bears, and Grizzly bears that Lewis and Clark needed to watch out for. Another reason I liked the book is because it had a lot of pictures. They were a little bit strange, yet they helped me to visulize what was happening. Finally, I enjoyed learning more about American history.
Overall, I enjoyed Of Courage Undaunted and would recommend it to anyone who loves adventure or learning more about the history of the United States of America.

My 11 year loved this book about Lewis and Clark. It was action packed and character building. I can't wait to share it with my younger son in a few years.
