Chapter #01 'Jefferson's Dream' introduces the listeners to the main players in the dramas to unfold over the following thirteen weeks. Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark are introduced, as is the huge mongrel that would accompany them for most of their journey. Called 'Shannon' in the Horizons West production, the dog's actual name has since been determined to be 'Seaman'. Sergeants Ordway and Gass are added to the Corps of Discovery's complement of military explorers.

  1. Great pick Andrew. I look forward to listening to the rest of this series, although I’ll miss Challenge of the Yukon. Keep up the good work!

  2. I’m reading about this, Andrew, is that it a true story, though obviously fictionalized to make an actual story. Being a continuous story we are always waiting for the next episode. It is also different because those of us who know history know what to expect. Thanks.
