Format: Hardcover
"Not another Lewis and Clark title!" might be the reader's initial reaction here, but wait - it's a novel, not the usual nonfiction: and further, it focuses on the man behind the Lewis and Clark famer - one Toussiant Charbonneau, Sacagawea's husband. While the grounding here is solid in scholarship, Richard Hetu's The Lost Guide is anything but difficult reading: steeped in narrative tradition it provides a fast-paced historical novel re-examining the expedition's experiences. Gripping.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Hilliary Turnipseed on October 20, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This fascinating novel had my undivided attention the entire time. I couldn't put it down. Richard Hetu focuses on this epic journey from the unique point of view of Sacagawea's husband and it gave me a new insight on the historical event that shaped the United States. Hetu's interpretation of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is unlike any other, and it is truly the most enjoyable book I have ever read. I recommend this mesmerizing novel to anyone with an open mind and a need for an easy, intellectual read.
