Publisher's Description

Based on the life of Marie Dorion, the first mother to cross the Rocky Mountains and remain in the Northwest, A Name of Her Own is the fictionalized adventure account of a real woman’s fight to settle in a new landscape, survive in a nation at war, protect her sons and raise them well and, despite an abusive, alcoholic husband, keep her marriage together.

With two rambunctious young sons to raise, Marie Dorion refuses to be left behind in St. Louis when her husband heads West with the Wilson Hunt Astoria expedition of 1811. Faced with hostile landscapes, an untried expedition leader, and her volatile husband, Marie finds that the daring act she hoped would bind her family together may in the end tear them apart.

On the journey, Marie meets up with the famous Lewis and Clark interpreter, Sacagawea. Both are Indian women married to mixed-blood men of French Canadian and Indian descent, both are pregnant, both traveled with expeditions led by white men, and both are raising sons in a white world.

Together, the women forge a friendship that will strengthen and uphold Marie long after they part, even as she faces the greatest crisis of her life, and as she fights for her family’s very survival with the courage and gritty determination that can only be fueled by a mother’s love.

    I enjoyed experiencing the trials, pain and accomplishments of Marie Dorion. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her bravery and dedication to the protection of her family. There was one scene that troubled me, though for the story to be authentic I understand why the author had to have such a brutal killing as it was a part of the dangers of fur traders. She did not go into too much detail which I was glad for, however, it was clearly known what happened. It was an intense scene that pulled into perspective the dangers of the wilderness she and her family were travelling. I would not say the story is face-paced but for readers who enjoy details of landscapes, character's thoughts and feelings and bits of suspense this is a very good read.

    A prime example of the old west traders and trailblazers fiction at its historical best. A book to read slowly, not so much concerned with how it ends, but to experience every mile of the rugged journey. Jane Kirkpatrick crafts graphic details of Ioway Indian Marie Dorian's mental and physical survival for herself and her children as she travels a rough man's trail, the trading route west from a woman with children's point of view. A rich exploration of what drives men to forge wilderness trails and what motivates their women to follow. An honest portrayal of a beastly time in our country's history, focused through the passions of a mother's heart.

    This was my first Kirkpatrick book, but not my last. The story is rich in detail, full of memorable characters. There are moments of dread, excitement, and tears. A thoughtful, heartfelt historical novel.

    I waited for this book with great expectations. I read and loved the 'Kinship and Courage' series but was disappointed with this book. The premise and historical aspects of this book were interesting but I found the flow of the book very slow. I couldn't put down the other series but had to make myself finish this one.

    This is the first book I read by Jane Kirkpatrick. What a wonderful historical novel tracing the first group of people who follow Lewis and Clark to the Pacific Ocean. Jane's attention to historical detail, development of characters, and spiritual development of her story are exceptional. I highly recommend any of her books.
