Sacagawea: Lewis and Clark's Pathfinder

Sacagawea: Lewis and Clark's Pathfinder

by Michael T. Crosby

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10- This attractive title introduces the young Shoshone woman who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Crosby addresses the controversies surrounding the proper meaning and pronunciation of her name and the date of her death. More importantly, he also explains the legacy of the journey: how our views of it have changed over time and how it affected Native Americans in the West. Full of clear maps, historical paintings, reproductions of period documents (including journals), and color photographs of landmarks along the route, this is a visually attractive package. In content, it is similar to Alana J. White's Sacagawea (Enslow, 1997), but the presentation is much more appealing. Detailed endnotes show the depth of the author's research, and the suggested reading includes books for both younger and older students and Internet sources.-Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
