Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-This accessible, accurate biography provides brief contextual information about the tribes in which Sacagawea lived, from her own people, the Shoshone, to her captors, the Minnetaree and Mandan. Since almost all that is known about her is from the journals of the Lewis and Clark expedition, this work necessarily focuses on that event and her part in it. Unfortunately, the black-and-white illustrations are dreadful. The cover borders on caricature and does nothing to invite interest or non-prejudicial awareness. The sketches of Lewis and Clark within the text are equally bad. Only those that detail specific material, such as a Shoshone tipi, Mandan lodge, or travois pass muster as good, informative, and text-enhancing. Another problem with the book is the lack of source information. David A. Adler's A Picture Book of Sacagawea (Holiday, 2000) is for younger students and Judith St. George's Sacagawea (Putnam, 1997), for older readers. Wait for a better choice to fill the gap.-Nancy Collins-Warner, Neill Public Library, Pullman, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Fascinating!

    This was a great book. It proved a great insight into a wonderful part of our american history. It was a good read - interesting, not too long, and provided alot of 'extra facts' abou the period and people of that time.

    Easy to Understand - Full of Information

    My son is 9 years old and loves to read all these "Who Was' books... they are not so long (so it isn't overwhelming to see a fat book to read) and they are easy to understand... He feels very proud when he finishes one and has gained so much knowledge too.

    You should read this book because its really outstanding to see what indians did back then and why some people stole some indians and how they escaped from the people who stole them.

    Excellent read, great for school projects!

    I purchased this book for my niece in the second grade. She read it everyday for a week. The material covered in this book is informative and detailed yet a little funny at times. Overall there were some words that were difficult for her to pronounce, such as the names of the Indian tribes, but she greatly enjoyed the book. She used this book for part of a home work project. Since reading this book, she has read 4 others from the collection, and enjoys picking out the ones she would like to read next.

    Ok

    Good information. But not a lot of pages. Which is not so good for a summer read.
