review I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company A Novel of Lewis and Clark Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Brian Hall Ð 3 characters It was impossible to enter paradise without having it crumble around him Hall brings this enigmatic character to life as no historian ever has A second voice is that of the Shoshone girl captive Sacagawea interpretor on the expedition whose short life of disruption and displacement mirrored the times in which she lived Other perspectives are provided by William Clark and by Toussaint Charbonneau the French fur trader who took Sacagawea as his wif. I thought I might like this book based on the title alone what a joy then to discover that there s so much to love the four pronged POV each a different take on Lewis and Clark s mad beautiful journey up the Missouri the bits and pieces from their actual journals sandwiched between plausible speculation about what might have happened and as in the very best historical fiction a clear eyed revision of the past here of life on the Plains and in the Northwest in the early 1800s クローバーの国のアリス黒いトカゲと苦い味 1 revision of the past here of life on the Plains and in the Northwest in the early 1800s

I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company A Novel of Lewis and Clark

review I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company A Novel of Lewis and Clark Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Brian Hall Ð 3 characters Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's expedition to the Pacific Ocean and back in the early nineteenth century is the most famous journey in American history But its very fame has obscured its oddness Its public image of discovery and triumphant return has veiled its private stories of longing and loss of self discovery and mutual ignorances of good luck and mischance and fortunate misunderstanding Rather than concentrate exclusively on the expedit. I think this is probably a better book than my rating would lead one to believe Like most historical fiction it paints between the rough outlines of the historical record to create a landscape which is both plausible and one hopes interesting but this novel goes above and beyond and crosses over from simply intriguing storytelling into a realm that brushes against poetry The expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark up the Missouri River and through the northwest to the Pacific Ocean is pretty well documented but Hall s writing brought the era to life in several different perspectives we have the cultured tormented voice of Lewis the straightforward voice of Clark even occasionally the weasel y broken English voice of Charbonneau Each of these perspectives is distinctive demonstrating an elasticity that is impressive in its own right And then there is the voice of Tsakakawia the teenaged Shoshone girl who infant son in arms operates as guide and translator for the party through the later part of their journey Her passages are like nothing I have encountered before and I am not remotely knowledgeable enough about Native cultures or language to know whether Hall s work here approaches accuracy or appropriateness It is clear that it was handled with great respect which I admire The writing is lyrical and the pace of the story especially a story in which so many of the plot points are fairly known was slow for me It was not a page turner there was no urgency hurrying me on to the next destination Rather like a slow journey upstream it took its time and even when the journey s tale was done the final eighth of the book concerned itself with following the characters farther winding their lives down and allowing musing on the nature of legacy of character of how various choices at various times shaped the nature of America s frontier and the ripples that appear even in our own day from the interactions between these various peoples in a place far from established civilization I don t think I will ever want to read this book again Nevertheless there are scenes and passages that will stick with me Bear hunting across the Missouri Every pang of subtext directed from Lewis to Clark Tsakakawia s death passage in which she pines over her lost culture and the loss of her son Jean Baptiste left me chilled

summary I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company A Novel of Lewis and Clark

review I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company A Novel of Lewis and Clark Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Brian Hall Ð 3 characters Ion Brian Hall has chosen to focus on emblematic moments through the whole range of the lives of its participants Ever present as a backdrop is the violent collision of white and Native American cultures and the broader tragedy of the inability of any human being to truly understand what lies in the heart of another Hall has written the novel in four competing voices The primary one is that of Lewis the troubled and mercurial figure who found that. A great historical novel about Lewis and Clark The book is told through multiple points of view Lewis Clark Charbonneau Sacajawea and others He attempts to give each its own voice but it makes Sacajawea s chapters very difficult to read and exoticizes her in a way It is a character driven book rather than a plot driven one as many of the climaxes of the story are not focused on for example the expedition reaching the Pacific Ocean A somewhat spoilery warning for those with depression or those who have considered suicide view spoiler Lewis chapters after the expedition are a heart wrenching look at him spiraling into severe depression These sections are both terrible and amazing because they are so visceral As someone who has had depression it triggered some of those thoughts I would definitely still recommend it but I wish I had been better prepared going into those sections hide spoiler
