School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 6-9--Sacagawea is the story of the Indian girl who, with her baby, traveled with Lewis and Clark guiding and interpreting. The biography of Lewis and Clark gives a full account of the expedition as well as background information on both leaders and what happened to each after the expedition. The authors of both volumes used the journals kept by Lewis and Clark and other members of the expedition as source material. The accounts thus told are accurate and free from much of the lore and romanticizing that has been added to the story over the years. The cover art renders the main characters Hollywood-perfect in looks (readers learn otherwise inside in contemporary portraits). All illustrations are from original sources. Unfortunately most of them are grouped in the middle of the books rather than placed appropriately within the text. The same is true of the maps, one in Sacagawea and two in Lewis and Clark. These volumes will satisfy the needs of report writers. --Deirdre R. Murray, Pine Road School, Huntingdon Valley, Pa.
