Review: Sacagawea of the Lewis and Clark Expedition

User Review  - Jen - Goodreads

I thought this book did a great job of showing what seems like a more realistic portrayal of Sacagawea's assistance on the Lewis and Clark expedition, and I liked that it told the Shoshone's point of view regarding the end of Sacagawea's life. Refreshing. Read full review
