The boats slip into the water at dawn and the journey begins. Some people think we may find monsters out West. But our leaders, Captain Lewis and Captain Clark, say that is an idea for dreamers. There is no room for dreaming on this journey into the unknown. Still, I dream and I carry my dream within me as we begin our quest to find a waterway to the western sea. I dream of finding freedom. My name is York and I am a slave. When the Lewis and Clark expedition launched its search for a water passage to the Pacific Ocean in 1803, a black slave accompanied them. His name was York and in this beautifully illustrated children's book, he tells the tale of this remarkable journey and his own search for freedom. It is an inspiring story of faith, courage, and resolve set against the backdrop of the most famous exploration in American history.
