"This soundly researched, smoothly written story will bring the entire expedition alive for readers 8-12, adding not only a canine but a human element to a tale that never grows wearisome. Nobody know what happened to Seaman... but he has certainly left on good book behind him."

- Parade magazine

"An effective, fictional introduction to the Lewis and Clark expedition."

- Booklist

"Once young readers begin this fictional account of the dog's role in the expedition, they will be caught up in the drama and action and even reluctant readers will find it just too good to put down."
