Publisher's Summary

Seldom given the credit she deserves, Sacajawea is one of America's true heroines. Without her help, the Lewis and Clark Expedition would never have crossed the Rockies and reached the Pacific Northwest - and the course of U.S. history would have been changed forever.

Master Western storyteller Neta Frazier, author of The Stout-Hearted Seven: Orphaned on the Oregon Trail, tells the story of this courageous Native American, from when she was kidnapped as a young girl from her Shoshone tribal home, through her amazing journey with Lewis and Clark, and finally to the mystery surrounding her final years and death.

Enjoyable, but have questions.

It was enjoyable, but I think it may be skewed from a point of view of white history assuming that she is a hero for helping Lewis and Clark claim land that wasn't theirs to claim. But it was interesting and I'm glad I listened to it. And I liked getting to know her and her precious baby boy.

Didn't Learn much, except that she...

My whole life I thought she had done more to help Lewis & Clark. I had no idea that her husband went with her as well and that she had a baby boy the entire time. I learned that she didn't really do all that much. She was really needed in just a couple of occasions. One being in Montana when Lewis & Clark get surrounded by Indians and it turns out, it's her people and she knows the language. Because of her, they lived. So that's a big deal but other than that, I didn't learn much about her.

The narrator was not cast very well. She wasn't that great at making it very fun to listen to or expressive when it counted. It could have been better on that end. It's mostly a story of talking about Lewis & Clark and 'OH! By the way, there was Sacagawea too, who was following'. You have to remember this wasn't just 3 people in the woods. They had about 30 people, boats, supplies, a huge dog, a baby, her husband.

Well told history of Sacagawea

Well read journey of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Sacagawea, a teenage Shashone woman who served as an interpreter and occasional guide to the L& C expedition. With many quotes from the journals of the men who made up the expedition,an accurate picture is given of Sacagawea’s contribution to the opening up of the American West to the Pacific Ocean helping in the expansion of the Continental U.S.vey enjoyable reading.
