Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this series of books for young adults, the historical deeds of some of the worlds best-known adventurers are presented in novel format. Each book contains a photographic documentary that prolongs the adventure.

Expertly combining history and an exciting narrative, this novel meets up with Meriwether Lewis and William Clark as they prepare to set out from St. Charles, Missouri, in 1804, tasked by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. Traveling with them as interpreter and guide is 16-year-old Sacagawea, a Shoshone squaw and the wife of a French fur trader. She is young and pregnant, but Sacagawea seems brave. Will she be valiant enough for an adventure like this one?

En esta serie de libros para adolescentes, los hechos históricos de algunos de los más reconocidos aventureros del mundo están presentados en formato de novela. Cada libro contiene un cuaderno de fotos para prolongar la aventura.

Magistralmente combinando la historia con una narrativa emocionante, esta novela topa con Meriwether Lewis y William Clark mientras se preparan para partir de St. Charles, Missouri, en 1804, encargados por el presidente Thomas Jefferson de explorar el recién adquirido territorio de Louisiana. Viajando con ellos como guía y traductora está Sacagawea, una squaw de 16 años y la esposa de un traficante de pieles francés. Es joven y está embarazada, pero Sacagawea parece valiente. ¿Será suficientemente valiente para una aventura como esta?
