Golfing with Lewis and Clark: My Rediscovery of America by Lex McMillan is an account of the author’s driving expedition across much of the United States. As the title implies, in 2017 McMillan followed the route that Meriwether Lewis and William Clark took as they explored the land acquired in the Louisiana Purchase. In addition to traveling the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, McMillan played golf at 16 courses. In the process, he gathered information about what people thought about the current state of the U.S. by asking them three questions: What is most valuable about America, what is most troubling, and what are one or two things that you would change to make our country a better place? McMillan’s trip took 40 days and he drove more than 9,700 miles. There are numerous photos, most of them relating in some way to the Lewis and Clark expedition. The book concludes with a summary of McMillan’s itinerary.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Golfing with Lewis and Clark by Lex McMillan. The book is remarkable in that it covers diverse topics, and yet weaves them all together in a fascinating, educational, and thought-provoking narrative. The text is part travelogue and part history and geography lessons. It provides thorough descriptions of the various golf courses that McMillan played, written from the standpoint of an average player, which is more valuable than if a professional golfer had written the reviews. The itinerary summary at the end of the book is especially helpful for anyone who might be thinking about driving across the United States. One of the reasons this book caught my attention is that I'm considering a similar cross-country trip. McMillan’s account of his travels helped inspire me to move my plans along. I highly recommend this book for golfers, travelers, those interested in the current political situation, or simply anyone who wants a captivating, well-written, and detailed story.
