I thought that this book was great because I like books that have expeditions in them and it is based on a true story. My favorite part of the book is chapter 2 because they went squirrel hunting. As I read this book I imagined that I was in the book. One of my favorite characters was the dog named Seaman because he is telling the story from his point of view.
I recommend this book because it is a great book because you get to learn about American history. I would recommend this book to readers that like to read about adventures. The illustrations in the book are great to look at because you can imagine being there at the scene during that time period. Kids ages 7 - 15 would enjoy reading this book because it is appropriate for this age group.
