Publisher Comments:

Clad in a doeskin, alone and unafraid, she stood straight and proud before the onrushing forces of America's destiny: Sacajawea, child of a Shoshoni chief, lone woman on Lewis and Clark's historic trek — beautiful spear of a dying nation.

She knew many men, walked many miles. From the whispering prairies, across the Great Divide to the crystal capped Rockies and on to the emerald promise of the Pacific Northwest, her story over flows with emotion and action ripped from the bursting fabric of a raw new land.

Ten years in the writing, SACAJAWEA unfolds an immense canvas of people and events, and captures the eternal longings of a woman who always yearned for one great passion — and always it lay beyond the next mountain.

Fabulous historical fiction! Waldo spent many years reasearching to write this book and includes copious notes, which solidify the actual history and give the reader a sense of why the fictional parts weave the way they do. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, I was taught about Lewis and Clark in school, but it came nowhere near the depth and breadth of Waldo's research.

Sacajawea's story runs deep: as an Indian, a woman, an intrepid traveler, a lover of peace. As I approached the last of the 1328 pages, I was truly filled with melancholy. I wanted to know the wonderful ending, but I didn't want the story to end!

Waldo really did a wonderful job making the many facets of Sacajawea's life so real to me that I felt a great kinship with her by the middle of the great Expedition, which ended about a third of the way through this book.

For those history buffs, many points along the Expedition's trail are pointed out, including what Lewis and Clark named them and what their current names are. Many references to the diets of different Native tribes were a bonus for me. Covering from about 1800 to 1900, there is a wealth of knowledge on the daily lives of early Americans.

This is a rare novel for me - I WILL read it again!

Being a Charboneau and related to a Toussaint Charboneau I was very interested in this book and it confirms information I have found on Toussaint. I knew he had a son called "Tess" by Otter Woman and Jean Baptist by Saccajawea. My great great grandfather is Louis John Charboneau. I am greateful for all your researching and publishing this book.
