Overview

It's the late 1700's, and a beautiful baby girl is born to a Shoshone Tribal Chief and his wife. The mother names the child Huichu, the Shoshone word for "Little Bird". Join Huichu, later called Sacagawea (Bird Woman), as she endures the hardships of slavery and abuse, only to discover true self worth as a member of a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition into the western territory.

Native American language, legend and customs are woven into this meticulously researched tale of a brave, young Native American girl who was so instrumental in paving the way for the white man's movement west. The events are real, the Native American legends have been passed down through the generations and the Shoshone language is authentic.

It is my sincere desire that by learning something about Sacagawea's life, the reader will gain an appreciation of the hardships endured and the accomplishments made by women in the early years of our great nation, the United States of America.
