The Friday 56, The Journals of Lewis and Clark

*Grab a book, any book.

*Post it.

Okay, it’s late but it’s still Friday and I don’t want to miss two weeks in a row since I’m trying to get back on track here. So…

This week the book is The Journals of Lewis and Clark selected and with an intro by John Bakeless. I love stories of explorers and there is some very interesting stuff here although it can also get pretty repetitive at times. But you just can’t beat the story told in the explorers own words.

The sentence:

A fat dog was presented as a mark of their great respect for the party, of which they partook heartily, and thought it good and well flavored.

Yummy! I wonder if it taste like chicken.

I wonder why a hot dog? Why not chicken?
