‘Undaunted Courage’ subject of library’s Book Discussion Group

By Staff | May 6, 2009

“Undaunted Courage” by Stephen Ambrose will be the topic of the Non-Fiction Book Discussion Group on Thursday, May 14 at the Sanibel Public Library.

The group will meet at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room #4 of the library, located at 770 Dunlop Road. There is no charge to attend and the group is open to all.

A biography of Meriwether Lewis that relies heavily on the journals of both Lewis and Clark, the book is also backed up by the author’s personal travels along Lewis and Clark’s route to the Pacific. Ambrose is not content to simply chronicle the events of the “Corps of Discovery,” as the explorers called their ventures. He often pauses to assess the military leadership of Lewis and Clark, how they negotiated with various native peoples and what they reported to Jefferson. Though the expedition failed to find Jefferson’s hoped for water route to the Pacific, it fired interest amount fur traders and other Americans, changing the face of the West forever.

Contact the library at 472-2483 for additional information about this or other programs.
