Twenty-eight carefully rendered illustrations provide glimpses of the life of the remarkable young Native American, among them views of her Shoshone childhood in what today is part of Idaho, the attack on her village by Hidatsa warriors, her life as a captive, her marriage, her first meeting with Lewis and Clark, the invaluable service she provided as an interpreter, her familiarity with the region through which they traveled, and her eventual return to the land of her childhood. Information captions are included in a coloring book that pays tribute to an exceptional woman.
Kidnapped as a young child by enemy warriors, sold to a French trader, and married at fourteen, Sacajawea was just a teenager when she helped lead explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark through the wilderness of the great American Northwest.
