Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the saga of early western exploration a young Shoshoni Indian girl named Sacajawea is famed as a guide and interpreter for the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Far Northwest between 1804 and 1806. Her fame rests upon her contributions to the expedition. In guiding them through the wilderness, in gathering wild foods, and, above all, in serving as an ambassadress to Indian tribes along the way she helped to assure the success of the expedition.

This book retraces Sacajawea's path across the Northwest, from the Mandan Indian villages in present-day South Dakota to the Pacific Ocean, and back. On the journey Sacajawea was accompanied by her ne'er-do-well French-Canadian husband, Toussaint Charboneau, and her infant son, Baptiste, who became a favorite of the members of the expedition, especially Captain William Clark.

The author presents a colorful account of Sacajawea's journeys with Lewis and Clark and an objective evaluation of the controversial accounts of her later years.

LuAnn, October 18, 2007 (view all comments by LuAnn)
This is one of the best written accounts of the Lewis and Clark journey I've read. Howard avoids over-quoting the journals and writes the book in plain language, making it very readable. The first part of the book deals with the journey itself and touches on Sacajawea's contributions whenever the journals mention her. Part 2 discusses the woman herself, her husband and son. It also presents the theories of her death and leaves it to the reader to decide which one to believe. A great addition to any book collection on Lewis and Clark and one that definitely contributes to history.
