The Captain's Dog: My Journey with the Lewis and Clark Tribe, by Roland Smith relies heavily on the Lewis and Clark journals, but the author also uses his imagination to fill in the gaps to give the reader a better sense of the Corps of Discovery's experiences. The tale is told through the eyes of the Newfoundland dog that journeys across the continent. Seaman retrieves game, serves as a guard dog, hunter, and a valuable member of the expedition. The author's lifelong love of dogs and wolves helps him describe what the dog might have thought of the incidents described in the captains' journals.For further information about the Washington State Library Washington Reads program, see our website at
