This book draws an accurate portrait of the woman who helped forge the trail across the West. Sold as a slave to a fur trader, Sacajawea later became his wife and met Lewis and Clark.

As a young girl, Sacajawea was separated from her family when she was captured by a band of Minnetaree warriors and taken to be their slave. Several years later, she was bought by a French fur trader to be his wife. Then, in 1804, when she was only sixteen years old, Sacajawea met Lewis and Clark.
