Giving voice to an important, if not the most important, Native American woman in history, Joyce Badgley Hunsaker deduces what Sacagawea might have recorded about her incredible journey as translator for the Lewis and Clark expedition from the Mississippi river to the Pacific Ocean. The author uses her skills as an award-winning historical storyteller and interpreter, along with well-researched historical material and native oral traditions, to produce this wonderful resource book. Pictorial examples of items and places mentioned in the narrative, some of Lewis's and Clark's own journal entries, and biographical information on many members of the 'Corps of Discovery' give a clear overview of both the expedition and the famous guide and her family. This is a great find for history buffs, teachers or students looking for information about this part of history, fans of Native American culture - almost anyone will be able to find the value of having this unique glimpse into America's history.
