2003 marks the Bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and schools, libraries and other organizations are planning special events and projects. A major character in the story of the expedition is Sacajawea. She was just a Shoshone teenager when she helped lead explorers Lewis and Clark through the wilds of the American Northwest. The carefully rendered illustrations in this book vividly depict scenes from the life of this remarkable young Native American—her abduction as a child by enemy tribesmen, life as a captive, and marriage to a French trader, her invaluable service during the expedition as an interpreter and guide (1805), and her eventual return to the land of her childhood. Informative captions included. Dover Original. 29 black-and-white illus.
