National Geographic: Lewis & Clark is a historical documentary series developed by the National Geographic Channel that sets to follow the amazing journey of pioneer explorers Merriweather Lewis and William Clark as they took to the uncharted lands of the western parts of America. In 1804, two military officers were given a daunting task: to explore the Louisiana Purchase, an 8000-mile expanse of land gained from the French thanks to President Thomas Jefferson that went from St. Louis to the Western coast. With little foreknowledge of what they would come across, Lewis and Clark survived with thanks to a French trapper Toussaint Charbonneau who let them borrow his wife Sacagawea, a native Shoshone woman, in order to act as their guide and translator as they took in all things new. The journey was about exploration but also about discovery as they took note of the new plants, animals, geography, and all the ways the West could be used by the United States. Follow Discovery Channel's beautiful guide as Jeff Bridges narrates the exploration of their journey and its fruits.moreless
