Combining beautifully wrought oil paintings, a moving true story, and a unique larger format, Sacagawea will captivate readers of all ages. Kidnapped from her Shoshone tribe when she was just eleven or twelve, Sacagawea lived with her captors for four years before being given in marriage to a French Canadian fur trapper. Toussaint Charbonneau. With him, she served as interpreter, peacemaker, and guide for the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Northwest in 1805-1806. Braving hunger and fierce blizzards, Sacagawea traveled thousands of miles with a baby on her back. By the end of the legendary journey. Sacagawea's steadfast courage and capable guidance had ensured her place in history.

Synopsis:

Sacagawea is a biography of this historical figure.

Synopsis:

The tale of Sacagawea reads like a legend, but her story is true. As a child, she was captured by enemy tribes and taken far from her Shoshone people. She married when she was no more than sixteen and soon gave birth to a baby boy. When her son was just two months old, she set off with Lewis and Clark on their journey of discovery. Sacagawea climbed over waterfalls and trudged through Rocky Mountain snow, traveling thousands of miles with a baby on her back. Again and again, she proved herself one of the most valuable members of the Corps of Discovery. She found food when meat was scarce. She acted as a translator when the corps needed horses to cross the mountains. And she guided the men through the wilderness when only she knew the way. By the end of the journey, Sacagawea had become a part of history.
