UPDATE: finished the book and loved it! What a genious idea, to write about a historical event through the eyes of a dog. Smith is a gifted, imaginative writer. He makes it all so believable- you forget that the dog is the narrator!
The story goes back and forth, between the present and past, but it wasn't difficult to follow along.





I've been reading this book aloud to my 10 yr old daughter. I must admit, I was expecting this to be dry, monotonous and boring. It is quite the opposite! I only wish I could have read more books like this as a child- I might have retained a lot more history. ( )

Lewis and Clark's expedition, from the viewpoint of Lewis's dog, Seaman. Good introduction to the Corps of Discovery for middle school readers. ( )

Read this for our kids book group. I had the opportunity to meet and hear the author speak when this book first came out in 1999.

What a wonderful way to tell history through the eyes of the dog who joined the journey. The author takes you through the Lewis & Clark Expedition with journal entries form Captain Clark and through the eyes of Captain Lewis's dog Seaman. Seaman is a newfoundland he purchased for $15 in Philadelphia while gathering supplies for the trip.

President Thomas Jefferson had just bought a large plot of land know as the Louisiana Purchase from the French and he needed to find out what he bought and if it might lead to a Northwest Passage for trade. He asked his friends Lewis and Clark to put a group of men together to undertake this task. A task that would take several years to complete and would lead to many hardships but also a vast amount of information on the flora and fauna.

I enjoyed Mr. Smith's telling of this historical event. ( )

The Lewis and Clark expedition as seen through the eyes of Lewis' Newfoundland dog Seaman. At an author event, Roland Smith talked about his fascination with the expedition and the research he conducted before writing the book. ( )

Born the runt of his litter and gambled away to a rusty old riverman, the Newfoundland pup Seaman doesn’t imagine his life will be marked by any kind of glory--beyond chasing down rats. But when he meets Captain Meriwether Lewis, Seaman finds himself on a path that will make history. Lewis is just setting off on his landmark search for the Northwest Passage, and he takes Seaman along. Sharing the curiosity and strength of spirit of his new master, Seaman proves himself a valuable companion at every turn. Part history, part science--and adventure through and through--The Captain’s Dog is the carefully researched, thrilling tale of America’s greatest journey of discovery, as seen through the keen, compassionate eyes of a remarkable dog.
