							When Sacagawea's son asks her about her life, she isn't sure where to begin. Does she start with her birth as a Shoshoni? Her kidnapping by an enemy tribe at age eleven? Or her role as the famous guide for the Lewis and Clark expedition? She’s seen and experienced more in her young life than most people ever will. Told from Sacagawea’s point of view, this historical novel shares the ordeals of her youth along with the memory of her long, arduous journey west with Lewis and Clark. She shares her love of nature and explains how her loyalties have changed over time.

"[Sacagawea] provide[s] insight into the discoveries and tribulations of both settlers and Native Americans." - Publishers Weekly

"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." - School Library Journal
