Maybe the territory between the Missis, sippi river and the Rocky mountains, which he had recovered frooi Spain, was «. "worthless wildtr- ness" anyway. Besides, he might not be able to keep Louisiana if he tried. And so he told the whole enormous tract of 318,000 square miles to the United States for |15,000,000—half of the most valuable river valley in the world for less than three cents an acre.

Neither the nation that sold nor the nation that bought could say how far the territory extended north or south or west, where the rivers and mountains were, or what Indian tribes Inhabited the region. Even before the deal had been completed, President Jefferson made plans to send an expedition to explore the Missouri river, to find a waterway' to the Pacific ocean if possibly, to study the Indian tribes and to observe the quality of the soil, mineral deposits, climate, vegetation, and animal life. For this dangerous and painstaking work, Jefferson chose his private secretary. Meriwether Lewis, Mtrlwether U«wi« a man of adventurous spirit, and William Clark, afi able frontiersman. Both were daring, intelligent, resourceful, loyal .to their country, and experienced in military service. Moreover, they were close friends. With them went 43'picked men, strong, brave, and trained to endure hardships of the wilderness. Besides 21 regular soldiers who volunteered, there were several hunters and interpreters sand ; a Negro 'slave. Only one of 'the company -was married, a French interpreter. His wife, i the noble f ' Indian girl, Sacagakea, accompanied her bus- band and guided the expedition across tht mountains. On May 14., the party left St. Louis in a long keel-boat and two large flat-bottomec? rowboats. Very laboriously they pushed against tk* swfft current of the MUaOurl. When the wind WAS ia the right direction they put up wdli, but most of th« time the men h*4 to row or walk along the shore and pull the boats with ropes. Sometimes they got stuck on sandbars or snagged by tree* in the muddy water. It wa» tie 18th of July before they passed the northern boundary of Missouri. For more than a month the explorers traveled along the weste.-a border of Iowa. They moved slowly, observing the country, going ashore to hunt, and visiting the Indiana.- Sometimes they camped on the Nebraska ride of the river and sometime! on the Iowa sido. but they preferred to tie up at an island, where they were less likely to be molested. Violent thunder storms often drenched them to the skin and occasionally the wlnJ nearly upset their boats. Near the mouth of the Boyer river they saw traces of a terrific hurricane, which had snapped off trees fonr feet in diameter. The mosquitoes were vicious. To add to their discomfort, many of the men were troubled with boils. About ten miles above the mouth of the Platte river, the expedition camped for four dayr,. while the men hunted and fished; dried provisions, mended oars, and explored the country. The leaders sent scouts to invite the Indians to a council, for they were eager to, learn about the tribes and show their friendship. Meanwhile, they worked on their maps and reports, made notes concerning the high hills of yellow clay, listed the kinds •f timber tfcey gav, and feasted o* wild grapes, veaisom, turkey, grouse and fat catfish. Many of the Indian braves were away on the plains hunting buffalo, but a few Otoes and Missouris agr*«4 to meet the explorer* farther up the river. With a good deal of anxiety Lewis and Clark awaited their first council. The ceremony was held on a high hill, since known as Council Bluf(, about 20 miles north of Omaha, In Nebraska. Captain Lewi* made speech that the Indian* could not understand, but the six chief* replied cordially. The Indian* were "almost naked," wrote Clark in his diary, "having no covering, except a sort Of breechcJoth around- the middle, with a loose blanket or buffalo robe painted, thrown over them." When the speaking wa» finished, presents were distributed aa tokens of friendship. While the explorers were preparing for the Indian council, one of the French interpreters disappeared. Pour days later a soldier left camp and failed to return. Immediately a party was sent back to find the two men, while the e:> pedfUon moved slowly up the crooked, course of the river. At one place, after rowing twelve mile*, they were within 370 yards of the place where they started. In a few days the deserters were found among the Indians and the soldier yas brot back to camp, but the Frenchman escapeu his captors and was never seen again. On Sunday, August 19th, Charles Floyd, one of the three sergeants in the company, became suddenly ill with colic. All night he was terribly sick at his stomach and the next day he grew steadily worse. The boats landed at two o'clock and soon afterward Sergeant Floyd died.

At least, on September 4, 180C, the boats rounded th* great bend in the river and pulled up at the foot of Floyd's bluff. The grave, which had been partially opened by Indians or wolves, was filled up again, and the sergeant's comrade*, Jeaa and brown after their strunous voyage, proceeded on their homeward way. Pestered by mosquitoes at night and eager to finish their tedious Job, the boatmen plied their oar§ steadily from daylight till dark. One day they traveled 78 miles. In less than a week they passed along the western border of Iowa. It was noon on September 23, 1S05, whe» Lewis and Clark brot their expedition safely into port at SL Louis. They had traveled more than 6,«0f miles thru an unknown wilderness, risked all the hazards of the elements, encountered hostile savages, and mapped an overland route to Oregon. ACTIVITY HINTS 1.
