Manifest Destiny takes you on a Journey to see all the mystery that is now the western United States. The book follows Lewis and Clarke on their expedition, however I think Chris Dingess might have lost his history book, and that’s not a bad thing. Captain Lewis, the brains of the operation, and Captain Clarke, the experienced soldier take the reigns as they lead a group of both volunteer soldiers and convicts promised their freedom upon success, as they explore uncharted territory in hopes of finding different species, Indians, and ‘monsters’. Throughout the book you get an eerie sense that something is going to happen, and all is not right. When the connection between all the expeditions soldiers is found out and an axe-wielding centaur attacks, it is blatantly obvious that the west being explored is one that is filled with mystery.
As soon as you open this book the artwork jumps right at you. Matthew Roberts’ depiction of the uncharted west is beautiful in every way. Roberts did a great job with each and every one of the characters; the reader can immediately look at each one and have a sense of what kind of role he is going to play, and what his attitude will be like.
There really is nothing negative I can say about this book, it’s great in almost every single way.
I really didn’t know what to expect when I heard about Manifest Destiny. If you haven’t gotten your hands on this book yet, I implore you, go get it. I’m giving Manifest Destiny a 5/5.
