One Hundred and Ninety-Nine Years Late by Jim Sargent is a fascinating Western History of Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, better known as “Pomp”. Pomp spent the first eighteen months of his life traveling 3,000 miles with the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Some of the journal entries record Pomp's birth, but none of them mention Pomp's first birthday. The author, Jim Sargent, decided it was time to make up for the oversight and initiated parties for the 200th anniversary of Pomp's birth. This Western Book records the huge success of these parties, over 15,0000 people, over 400 parties; all 50 states, six Canadian provinces, eleven other countries over four continents and four cruise ships. The celebrations were terrific, creative, educational and fun! 

Jim Sargent has a PhD in US History from Michigan State and, thereafter, began teaching American History at Clemson and Ball State for over 40 years.
