Brandon Blythe (Children's Literature) Hugh McNeal can hardly believe his luck as he is assigned to accompany Captain Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on a difficult mission to discover a northwest passage to the Pacific Ocean. Bold Journey recreates the actual Lewis and Clark expedition from 1804-1806 through the eyes of the youngest member, Hugh McNeal. Although the expedition actually took place, the book is fictional. Along the way, the men face harsh weather, unfriendly Indians, wild animals, and the troubles caused by thirty men who know little about one another, but have to spend every day together for two years. 2004 (orig. 1985), Houghton Mifflin Company, $6.95. Ages 10 to 14.
