Synopses & Reviews
In this redesigned edition of Scott O'Dell's classic novel, a young Native American woman, accompanied by her infant and her cruel husband, experiences joy and heartbreak when she joins the Lewis and Clark expedition seeking a way to the Pacific.
"This is action-packed drama, believably revealed by a stoic heroine who maintains her self-worth despite vagaries of fortune in which she's a pawn of men and natural forces . . . The book retains its grip on the reader to a fine-honed finish." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
