Publisher's Summary

No woman in all of our history has captured the imagination like the young Shoshone girl Sacagawea, who served as in interpreter and often as a guide for Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition into our uncharted West. She exists in the journals and narratives of that legendary search as a shadow, valued for her knowledge of the languages, the country, and the customs of her people, but always as a shadow and a stranger.

In this novel, Sacagawea comes to life and gives us an exciting new perspective on this heroine of an American saga. Her story begins on an early evening in late summer when she was captured by the Minnetarees and taken away from her family and everything she knew. From that moment on, her life changes dramatically. Her fate leads her to Lewis and Clark, but especially to Captain Clark, a man she begins to love - a dangerous emotion on the perilous journey to the Pacific Ocean.

Captivating

My three kids and I were captivated from beginning to end. The story sparked some good discussions about the treatment of women and Indians, the perseverance of the explorers, and the expansion of the U.S. west of the Mississippi. The narrator was exceptional.
