This is an excellent selection from the journals, and the readers are great. You get a strong distinction between the gruff, no-nonsense Clark and the sensitive Lewis, and occasionally a third narrator breaks in to provide background information. The extracts are well-chosen and lengthy, so it doesn't feel too choppy.
Still, I'm not sure that an audiobook is the best way to read Lewis and Clark. To enjoy the story fully I really wanted to follow their route on a map, but even the third narrator gives little information about exactly where they are at any time, so it's not possible to do that. There are times when you really want footnotes, too - L&C will describe strange animals, for instance, and you'll be trying to figure out what on earth they're talking about but can't.
This is as good an audiobook of L&C as you could wish for - but I still recommend reading them on paper in an edition with lots of helpful notes.
