    Lewis had no formal education until he was 13, but in Georgia during that time he enhanced his skills as a hunter and outdoorsman. His interest was natural history, his mother taught him how to gather herbs. As an adult, he was Jeffersons aid often conversing with political figures and when the time came for the exploration of the Purchase, Jefferson chose Lewis because of his unconventional knowledge.
