Incredible Voyage of Discovery
Review by Valerie B. on 03/28/24 review stating Incredible Voyage of Discovery
I saw this PBS documentary a few years ago and was so grateful to see it available for purchase. The story of the Corps of Discovery is riveting, moving and engrossing. Kudos to Ken Burns, Americas national treasure for this wonderful documentary of this epic journey of discovery. President Jefferson trusted his personal secretary , Captain Meriwether Lewis, to undertake the journey. Mr. Lewis relied on his prior military friend, Second Lieutenant William Clark to co-lead the expedition. The storytelling is magnificent!

Review by JURGEN on 03/25/24 review stating Burnss documentary movies are first-rate.
Burnss documentary movies are first-rate. And so is this one. It was quite an adventure to become familiar with the adventurous history of the American West. Special poignancy was added by letting Native American voices be heard.

Review by Kenneth on 08/30/23 review stating A great history lesson
We all have known what Lewis and Clark DID since our elementary school days. This documentary explains the minutiae of HOW they did it. It informs us of all the drama, courage and commitment to a chosen duty that their expedition entailed. I found the documentary compelling and a great source of information.

Review by Dave on 06/27/22 review stating My Favorate.
Everybody should watch this video and try to put themselves in time and place. Only then, one will realize how amazing this journey really was. Not only from a historic point but also an educational one. They truly were The Corp of Discovery. The video inspired me to read the journals of Lewis and Clark and visit sites along their route.

A tremendous adventure and film.
Review by Bert review stating A tremendous adventure and film.
Such a wonderful opportunity to travel back in time as well as across the continent when it was young and new. This product really reflects the strength of character and body needed, as well as the excitement of new discovery and the travail of severe hardships encountered by those who made this trek. To have been amongst them on such a quest!
