In the saga of early western exploration a young Shoshoni ì Indian girl named Sacajawea is famed as a guide and interpreter ì for the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Far Northwest between ì 1804 and 1806. Her fame rests upon her contributions to the ì expedition. In guiding them through the wilderness, in gathering ì wild foods, and, above all, in serving as an ambassadress to ì Indian tribes along the way she helped to assure the success of ì the expedition.
This book retraces Sacajawea's path across the Northwest, from ì the Mandan Indian villages in present-day South Dakota to the ì Pacific Ocean, and back. On the journey Sacajawea was accompanied ì by her ne'er-do-well French-Canadian husband, Toussaint ì Charboneau, and her infant son, Baptiste, who became a favorite ì of the members of the expedition, especially Captain William ì Clark.
The author presents a colorful account of Sacajawea's journeys ì with Lewis and Clark and an objective evaluation of the ì controversial accounts of her later years.
