The Expeditions Story-in-Song
by Bobby Horton and Kindra Ankney
As we approach the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, we would like to introduce you to this exciting new resource to enhance your study of this interesting period of Americas past. As the Corps of Discovery made their way across the continent, they sang. Music was regularly employed to brighten spirits, pass time, and enhance diplomacy. Based on journal entries and related historical documents, Songs of the Journey provides a beginning-to-end look at the expedition in a way that is sure to please Lewis and Clark students of all ages and knowledge levels. The songs are accompanied with a capitivating blend of instruments available to citizens in 1804-1806 in America. "The incomparable Bobby Horton takes you along in words and music on one of Americas greatest adventure stories--the Lewis and Clark Expedition."
