Description

The classic story of Sacajawea for young readers in a new, illustrated edition.

Seldom given the credit she deserves, Sacajawea is one of America's true heroines. Without her assistance as a guide and interpreter, the Lewis and Clark Expedition would never have crossed the Rockies and reached the Pacific Northwest - and the course of U.S. history would have been changed forever.

Master Western storyteller Neta Frazier, author of The Stout-Hearted Seven: Orphaned on the Oregon Trail, tells the story of this courageous Shoshone woman from the time when she was kidnapped as a young girl by a Hidatsa war party, through her amazing journey with Lewis and Clark, and finally to the mystery surrounding her final years and death.

The author

Neta Lohnes Frazier is remembered for her children's books about the Pacific Northwest. Of her 14 books, four were honored with awards from the Junior Literary Guild. Frazier graduated from Whitman College before forging a career as a teacher, editor, and writer.
