Path to the Pacific: The Story of Sacagawea
Seldom given the credit she deserves, Sacajawea is one of America’s true heroines. Without her help, 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 Native American, from when she was kidnapped as a young girl from her Shoshone tribal home, through her amazing journey with Lewis and Clark, and finally to the mystery surrounding her final years and death.
