Sacagawea was a Native American Shoshone Indian who guided Lewis and Clark on their expedition. After she was captured and sold an opposing tribe to a white trader, she served to translate and show the land to the new travelers, with her newborn baby. The illustrations were not the most appealing, they looked old which turned me off from the book. I was hoping the book would give new details about Sacagawea, but most of the information was what we already know and learn from school. The book was okay, and I would read it to my students when introducing Sacagawea to students, but apart from that I would not read this book again. ( )

This biography about Native American, Sacagawea, describes that there was more uniqueness about her than beyond her name. This story was a Shosone Indian who experienced slavery, kidnapping, being sold as a slave, being forced into marriage, and her experience with Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the Pacific Ocean. Eventually, she was able to create peace amongst other Indian tribes as Lewis and Clark's translator. This book proves that there is not much information about Sacagawea about her expedition with Lewis and Clark, and there are theories of her death at the end. The material and pictures in this book depict the Native Indian culture, and what life was like during the late 18th century and early 19th century in the Rocky Mountains. ( )

Sacagawea (pronounced like "Sacca guh way uh) is Hidatsa, for bird (“sacaga”) and woman (“wea”) - BirdWoman. And she was, all this I learned from a podcast called "Stuff You Should Know". This biography of her life and the events leading up to her death. ( )

This book is about the life of Sacagawea. I had always been familiar with her only because her name was so unique. I did not know her whole and what she had been through. I think this book will be better for a little of the older kids bc it's quite lengthy. This can teach children about the Lewis & Clark Expedition and how life was so different back in the day. In the beginning, when Sacagawea was taken, she was going to be someone's "second wife" nowadays such things are frowned upon. The children can have an insight into how difficult and different life was for Sacagawea. But how much of an impact she was to the Lewis & Clark Expedition. ( )

A beautifully illustrated picture book telling the story of Sacagawea, a Shosone Indian who was kidnapped, sold, forced to marry, and then later accompanied Lewis and Clark on their expedition to found a route to the Pacific Ocean. Sacagawea served as an interpreter for the men and made peace with other Indian tribes, explaining to them that the men were not dangerous but were on a mission. The book ends with theories of dates and ways that Sacagawea passed away and I do wish that more was known about her life after the expedition ended. ( )
