“The Feather” will be a fantasy novel based on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Corps of Discovery, that began in 1804 and was completed in 1806. This history changing expedition was initiated by President Thomas Jefferson to help solidify the Louisiana Purchase which doubled the size of the United States during his first term in office as President.
Frederick Fichman’s novel will take the reader into the world of that expedition from the winter camp at Fort Mandan in North Dakota to the Pacific Ocean and Fort Clatsop near the present location of Seaside, Oregon. A detailed looked at what the Lewis and Clark Expedition encountered on that journey, how they lived and descriptions of the complexity of the personalities during that adventure will be described in the novel. The reader will get the feeling of “being there.” The novel Mr. Fichman is writing, “The Feather,” will explore a “What If” scenario through all the struggles that the Corps of Discovery encountered.
