The most notable expedition in U.S. history was led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, with soldiers, an African-American slave, a female guide, and Canadian boatmen. Ken Burns' LEWIS & CLARK re-creates the 1803 journey to locate the Northwest Passage. The explorers found a varied landscape and a dizzying diversity of Indian peoples.

I truly enjoyed and felt the I learned something of value, having seen Lewis & Clark : The Journey of the Corps of Discovery by Ken Burns. We homeschool our children so this DVD set was a great tool in the educational arsenal. The twins are 12 and really enjoyed what they learned and are watching it a second time by their own choice to write a report about what they learned. Thanks Ken Burns and PBS for making this DVD available and affordable. I highly recommend this for the whole family to enjoy.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition neither started nor ended in Saint Louis. That distinction belongs to St. Charles, Missouri, a city in current St. Louis County, but at that time too far away to be considered a suburb of St. Louis.
There is scant mention of the French in the area and also of the French boatman -who were natives of the area and NOT Canadian's-- who also made the journey. Lewis and Clark are fawned over as exceptional heroes. It is an exercise in typical Anglo-American history based myopia. Don't waste your time or money on this DVD set.

      Comments about PBS Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery DVD:

      I really wish you would decide on a reliable digital format for these documentaries. I have bought them in DVD format in the past but as the world moves to digital I don't even own a DVD player anymore. The whole point of these is to be able to learn and watch and rewatch. While I know funding needs makes it very convenient to put them away and pull them back out again, wouldn't it be even better to have a reliable income stream from them? This one has become very rare which is such a shame.

      Lewis & Clark a HIT

      Comments about PBS Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery DVD:

      As always, Ken Burns' film on the Lewis & Clark, Corp of Discovery epic expedition is fantastic! I am quite a fan of L&C Expedition and Burns portrays it to a "T." For anyone with a little adventure in his/her soul this is a must.

      Another Burns Masterpiece

      By Peggy

      from Charleston, Illinois

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about PBS Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery DVD:

      I saw this series some years back when it was broadcast on PBS and thought it was wonderful. I bought it and watched it again last week and was not disappointed. What Ken Burns can do with narrative voices, still pictures and landscapes, and evocative music is really great. And what an amazing piece of history the Lewis and Clark expedition was! A turning point for the United States, and also, in a sadder way, for the native Americans and for the unspoiled wilderness they inhabited.
