Gossamer Books LLC Commemorates the 200th Anniversary of the Lewis & Clark Expedition
Educational graphic novel on the adventures of Lewis & Clark to be released in April 2005

Gossamer Books LLC announces the launch of their educational graphic novel, “Pacific Bound: The Adventures of Lewis & Clark” (ISBN 0-9742502-5-2) in April 2005 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Lewis & Clark expedition. With the educational graphic novel genre increasingly getting accepted as a supplement to children’s literature, "Pacific Bound: The Adventures of Lewis & Clark", written by Lauri Olsen, takes this genre to narrate the story of Lewis & Clark's expedition to the Pacific Ocean.

"Pacific Bound: The Adventures of Lewis & Clark" follows the story of Corps of Discovery led by Merewether Lewis and William Clark along with his faithful dog Seaman over the next two years. During this period, the Corps of Discovery travel thousands of miles, experience new lands, rivers and people. The production team took two years of exhaustive research and planning to create the meticulously crafted landscape illustrations and a historically relevant story.

The novel is carefully mapped to the U.S. Department of Education’s national standards for teaching U.S. History. It is painstakingly researched to create an accurate account of the events and incidents as they occurred in history to generate interest of grade-schoolers in key historical themes specified by national and state educational guidelines. This book will be a useful resource for librarians and teachers at K-12 educational levels.

Gossamer Books has also released some highly interactive and educative lesson plans based on the Lewis & Clark expedition that can be downloaded free of cost from their official website www.gossamerbooks.com

Angel Oberoi, President, and founder of Gossamer Books LLC commented, "This is the third novel in the series of first two successful novels by Gossamer Books. Keeping the earlier tradition of historical accuracy and elaborate illustrations intact, this novel is a visual delight for the school-going kids and adults alike”.

The educational graphic novel can be ordered from BWI, Baker & Taylor, and Brodart. For further information on the novel, contact www.gossamerbooks.com.
