9780142004838: Sea of Glory: America's Voyage of Discovery, the U.S. Exploring Expedition, 1838-1842

America's first frontier was not the West; it was the sea. In 1838, an enormous expedition headed by the young, brash Lieutenant Charles Wilkes set out for the Pacific Ocean with six ships and hundreds of sailors on what would turn out to be a wide-reaching journey of adventure, discovery, and controversy. Literally broadening our horizons, the Exploring Expedition's ships covered the Pacific Ocean from top to bottom, discovered a new continent that Wilkes would name Antarctica, and brought America to the world's attention for its scientific endeavours as well as its bravado. Using diaries kept on board, historian Nathaniel Philbrick uncovers the dark saga that the official reports never told.
