The Captain's Dog: A Dog's View of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is a classic canine adventure in three parts by veteran dog writer Robert Scott McKinnon. This is Part 1. The three parts cover the entire Lewis and Clark journey, and more, from before Washington and President Jefferson, then the American Odyssey to the Pacific and back, a unique perspective of how it might actually have been, the laughs, the cries, the love of a dog for his Captain, and the love of the expedition for the dog. McKinnon has not only penned well over 200 published dog stories, he has made three extensive river trips, two of them with dogs. 3200 miles on the Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, and Savannah rivers; 1100 miles on the Salmon, Snake, Columbia, Willamette, and Sacramento rivers; and he was the first to take a boat up the famous Salmon River, The River of No Return, in which a movie was made called The River Busters. McKinnon (and his dogs) know what it's like down in a windblown, cold, wet river trench where even with maps you don't know one creek from the other, and you have no idea where you are ... until you get there. "And the dog would put his head on Lewis' lap, with adoration that indicated he would do anything, go anywhere with this man." The Captain's Dog: A Dog's view of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is a unique adventure of how it might have been, the laughs, the cries, the love of a dog for his Captain, and the love of the Captain and the expedition for the dog. "Our dog, Captain. Our dog."
