I’m proud to announce that my epic tale of the Lewis & Clark expedition, Lewis & Clark: Adventures West, is now available as an ebook! If you have a kid in school who needs to do a report on American history, or you just want to experience the adventure for yourself, this is the book for you.
This ebook has been a long time coming. Originally published in hardcover in 2005, it sold in museums and bookstores across the country during the expedition’s bicentennial celebration, and it was a finalist at the 17th Annual Minnesota Book Awards.
Because the 192-page book is so design intensive (featuring 187 photos and illustrations, 4 maps, travel tips, glossary, and index), until now it didn’t lend itself well to ebook formatting. But last month Amazon released its “Kindle Textbook Creator” software, which made turning the book into digital ebook format a snap. While I was at it, I updated the text and added more photos for you to enjoy.
To conduct research for this book, I retraced the expedition’s entire journey, from St. Louis all the way to the Pacific Ocean. I took all the contemporary photography, showing you how all the major expedition sites look today.
Head on over to Amazon to download. Note that it’s not meant for e-ink devices. It’ll display in gorgeous color on Kindle Fires, plus iPads, Android tablets, and PCs and Macs with the free Kindle app.
For my loyal fans: for the first week, before I widely advertise the book, I’m keeping the price as low as Amazon will allow me to go for such a big file–$2.99. In April, it goes up to its normal list price of $4.99 (still a bargain compared to the $28 hardcover).
