Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A cracking good yarn . . . sheer storytelling power . . . James Alexander Thom is one of the finest historical novelists writing today. . . . Anyone who thinks there's nothing left to be said about the Lewis and Clark expedition should read this book.--John Sugden, author of Tecumseh: A Life

Following the Louisiana Purchase, Thomas Jefferson sends Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to explore the newly acquired territory. To survive, the two captains need an extraordinary hunter who will be able to provide the expedition with fresh game, and a sign-talker to communicate with the native tribes. They choose George Drouillard. It is Drouillard, an actual historical figure, who becomes our eyes and ears on this unforgettable odyssey.

A magnificent tale told with intelligence and insight, Sign-Talker is full of song and suffering, humor and pathos. James Alexander Thom has created the rarest reading experience: one that entertains us even as it shows us a new vision of our nation, our past, and ourselves.

Excellent . . . It is at once an adventure story and] a historical document. . . . Even though many readers know the story of Lewis and Clark, Thom's novel will give them new insight.--The Indianapolis Star (four-star review)
