Augustus Pelletier - Book Review
Kathryn Lasky wrote The Journal of Augustus Pelletier. This book is about a 13-year-old boy named Augustus, that tells about the Lewis and Clark Expediton from his point of view. It is interesting how this book goes in detail from the animals that Lewis caught to the great rivers they named. Their expedition ended at the Pacific Ocean, or as they call it "The Shining Sea." On the Journey they meet various Indian tribes, I am sure you have heard of Sacagawea. She was part of the Shoshini tribe. Sacagawea was separated from her tribe at a young age and sold. In this book, their are harsh parts, like whippings being given for ridiculous reasons, and their are glorious parts like a new child being born.
I found this book very interesting. I learned quite a lot from it, but it was still fun to read. I found myself reading it at my cousin's house when I was bored. I recommend this book to anyone who likes history or wants to read about an interesting journey with ups and downs. Well, Until next time....
