Whisper1 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Beautifully juxtapositioning the imagined voice of young 16 year old Shoshoni Indian Sacajawea with the actual written journal entries of Lewis and Clark, the author paints a beautiful depiction of the expedition.Balancing the pragmatic statements of Lewis and Clark with the heartfelt observations of Sacajawea, this book is a masterpiece. Adding the voice of Sacajawea to the thoroughly detailed descriptions provides a well-rounded snap shot of American history.While the author took liberties imagining the thoughts and feelings of Sacajawea, still, this book is a credible documentation of the trails and travails of crossing a wilderness of mountains, raging rivers, biting rattlesnakes, fearsome bison, rain that soaked for weeks and food that at times consisted of dogs purchased from the Indians.The mere fact that they lived to tell about it is a marvel in and of itself.This is a marvelously poetic book that leaves the reader in awe of the bravery and courage of the members of the Lewis and Clark expedition.Highly recommended.
