Come join Sacagawea on her eyewitness account as she serves as interpreter and guide and survives dangerous adventures as the Lewis and Clark expedition treks through the wilderness. this novel is most memorable for the flesh-and-blood Shoshoni woman who emerges from its pages. Sacagawea is revealed as a complex personality: a protective mother, a skilled navigator, and a brave negotiator who often saves the expedition from disaster. Her unique insight energizes this story and lifts it beyond mere adventure. -- School Library Journal
