Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At age sixteen, Sacajawea is married, a mother, and has been taken from her Shoshone people. She has been asked to join Lewis and Clark in their expedition to explore the land from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean. As a translator, peacemaker, caretaker, and guide, young Sacajawea alone will make the historic journey of Lewis and Clark possible.<P>This captivating novel, which is told in alternating points of view — by Sacajawea herself and by William Clark — is a unique blend of history and humanity. It provides an intimate glimpse into what it would have been like to witness firsthand this fascinating time in our history. This is Sacajawea's legendary journey . . .

About the Author

I grew up in the small town of Greenfield Center, New York, which is in the foothills of the Adirondacks not far from the city of Saratoga Springs. It is a place I love, close to the forests and the mountains.

I was raised by my grandparents, who had a little general store. My grandmother, Marion Dunham Bowman, was a graduate ofAlbany Law School. Although she never did practice law, she kept the house filled with books. It's because of her that I wasalways reading.

My grandfather, Jesse Bowman, was of Abenaki Indian descent. He could barely read and write, but I remember him as oneof the kindest people I ever knew. I followed him everywhere. He showed me how to walk quietly in the woods and how tofish. He told me that his father never spanked him, but would only talk to him when he misbehaved. He raised me in the sameway.

I loved my grandparents' little general store. I helped out as much as I could, ringing up purchases on the cash register andwashing customers' cars and windows. In the fall and winter, I would sit around the wood stove and listen to the local farmersand lumberjacks tell tall tales. One of those men was Lawrence Older. When I grew up, he taught me the songs and stories heknew about the Adirondacks.
