              Born as a mountain brook, the Hudson River courses through dangerous rapids and waterfalls in a dramatic plunge of 4,000 feet. Then, remarkably, the river slows and widens, becoming over the next 154 miles a massive arm of the sea, with saltwater and powerful tides. One summer Pe...ter Lourie set out to explore this extraordinary river by doing what no one had ever done: he canoed the entire 315-mile Hudson, from its source in the Adirondack Mountains to its mouth at the southern tip of Manhattan, where it meets the Atlantic. This exciting day-by-day account of Lourie's journey, complete with full color photographs, gives young readers the feel of shooting wilderness whitewater, gliding through the fjordlike Hudson Highlands, and, finally, plying the ocean shipping lanes off Manhattan's shore. Far more than a canoeing adventure, this book paints a vivid portrait of a river that is a nation's treasure.

              In 1804 Lewis and Clark and a small band of adventurers calling themselves the Corps of Discovery set off on a great journey into the unknown. Along the way they met a young Shoshone woman who would make an invaluable contribution to the expedition. With a baby strapped on her ba...ck, Sacagawea negotiated with native peoples, helped the expedition survive when food was scarce, and, ultimately, contributed to leading this small band of intruders on a trip lasting more than two years through the Indian land to the Pacific Ocean. One summer, Peter Lourie and his family traveled in the footsteps of Sacagawea to learn about her from the native peoples who now live along her trail. As the Louries traveled the historic route, they grew closer to American history and to understanding the woman who contributed so much to the early expansion of the United States.
