Jefferson's America {a review}

I've mentioned this before but I'm a huge history buff. I majored in it and have always found it to be interesting. I was really excited to read Julie M. Fenster's book Jefferson's America, especially after reading that it was "riveting" and "entertaining".

While it was interesting to read about Lewis & Clark, Zebulon Pike and others who explored rivers and America's West, it was not an exhilarating page turner. I thought the maps included were interesting and the pictures, though taken years later, of the areas explored were neat too.  Unless you have a specific interest in these explorers, I wouldn't recommend reading the book.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
