Exploring the West: CKHG Student Book

$4.95

Exploring the West focuses on the determination of some famous Americans to explore the West when our country was young. Students discover that as a boy, Daniel Boone learned about living in the forests from the Lenape Native Americans. This knowledge later helped him lead a group of men to clear the Wilderness Road, allowing settlers to travel through the Appalachian Mountains into Kentucky. Students travel with Lewis and Clark and the group of explorers they led, the Corps of Discovery, and discover just how much help the Corps had from Native Americans along the way.
