When young Sacagawea first lays eyes on the white men coming up the river, she cannot imagine the impact they will have on her life ― and she on theirs. For the men coming up the river are about to make history, and she is going to help them. Sacagawea joined the Lewis and Clark team as an interpreter and guide. Her knowledge of the language, land, and people of the unchartered West made her an integral part of their success. In a brilliant novel, the award-winning author Scott O’Dell brings her story to life, giving us a breathtaking account of this young heroine’s role in an American saga. “This is as intriguing a re-creation as Sacagawea herself.”― Publishers Weekly
