Sacagawea: Westward with Lewis and Clark

School Library Journal: “(A) well-written and well-presented biography of the young Shoshone woman who accompanied Lewis and Clark on their exploration of the American West. The text, documented by reputable works including Stephen E. Ambrose’s "Undaunted Courage," keeps to the known facts. It is Sacagawea’s role as a ‘vital member of the groundbreaking Corps of Discovery’ that is honored.”

Kirkus Reviews: “Readers will enjoy this intriguing story, told in this well-written book that is not shy about honoring (Sacagawea’s) accomplishments.”

VOYA: “Sacagawea’s remarkable life related throughout White’s book is derived from entries in the journals of both Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, as well as from the Shoshone Oral Tradition. . . .A solid choice for libraries working to build their collection of Native American biographies. . . .White’s book is certainly an interesting read and will appeal to those who have a special interest in the subject. . . .Concisely written and highly readable. Chapters are broken into sections prefaced with bold, enticing headings, which works well to retain the reader’s interest. The chapter notes, further reading section, index, and glossary are commendable assets to the text.”

In 1805-1806, a young Shoshone girl named Sacagawea accompanied Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on an expedition to the Pacific Coast. Sacagawea made many contributions to the expedition—important contributions that helped ensure its success. Imagine a sixteen-year-old with a baby in a cradleboard on her back, beginning a journey that would take her some six thousand miles by foot, horseback, and canoe on the first organized exploration of the American West. This is Sacagawea’s true story.
