Overview

John W. W. Mann offers an absorbing and richly detailed look at the life of Sacajawea's people before their first contact with non-Natives, their encounter with the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the early nineteenth century, and their subsequent confinement to a reservation in northern Idaho near the town of Salmon. He follows the Lemhis from the liquidation of their reservation in 1907 to their forced union with the Shoshone-Bannock tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation to the south. He describes how for the past century, surrounded by more populous and powerful Native tribes, the Lemhis have fought to preserve their political, economic, and cultural integrity. His compelling and informative account should help to bring Sacajawea's people out of the long shadow of history and restore them to their rightful place in the American story.

Editorial Reviews

CHOICE

"[A] fascinating study. . . . The author's thoroughly researched account is bolstered by the inclusion of American Indian perspectives, particularly contributions from Lemhi Shoshone activists."—Choice
Statesman Journal

“This remarkable book is, in effect, the biography of a people. . . . An amazing story about a group of people who managed to live in harmony with just about everything except human beings. . . . and especially Western governments.”—Statesman Journal
Idaho Statesman

“Mann offers an absorbing an richly detailed look at the life of Sacajawea’s people before their first contact with non-natives, their encounter with the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the early 19th century and their subsequent confinement to a reservation near Salmon.”—Idaho Statesman
True West Magazine

“Mann’s interesting study of Sacajawea’s Lemhi Shoshoni tribe (originating in the area of Salmon, Idaho) provides a wealth of information pertaining to the great Indian icon and her people. Based on historical research used to dedicated the original tribal site, the book offers historians an abundance of information—detailed well into this century—on Sacajawea’s people.”—Linda Wommack, True West Magazine

— Linda Wommack

Washington State Magazine

“[A] much needed account of the historical clash between a government based on European ideas and a small tribe clinging tenaciously to its culture, identity, and sense of place. Mann should be commended for relating a story that is just as hard fought as the journey aided by Sacajawea 200 years ago.”—Kathie Meyer, Washington State Magazine

"A compelling account of the Lemhis’ struggle for autonomy. . . . This book may provide them with some important legal ammunition."—Mark van de Logt, Canadian Journal of History

    A reviewer

    I found this book interesting because my family is intimately invested in the Lemhi Shoshone¿s future. This book is the best researched text dealing with the Lemhi¿s struggle for regaining federal recognition. The factually and tragic history of the Lemhi was a very fascinating topic. The part of the book that most symbolically captured the disrespect paid to Sacajawea¿s people occurs when today¿s government tried to honor Sacajawea by putting out the dollar coin, by using a Bannack model for a Lemhi girl. I hope that the future will be kinder to the Lemhi people.
