Media reviews

In this informative, non-romanticized biography of Sacajawea, the author does not rely on her own inventions to add interest to the tale, but allows the adventure inherent to the events to carry her story. She provides ethnographic information, such as the lifeways of farmers and hunters, as well as historical background on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Includes black-and-white drawings and a map showing the route of the expedition.
