Sacagawea speaks...but doesn't have a lot to say.

This book picks up when Sacagawea joins the Lewis and Clark expedition, with only a little about her back story, and ends at the end of the expedition with only a little about the rest of her life. It's kind of a coffee table book, complete with glossy pages and lots of drawings and photos, and is something of a Cliff notes version of Undaunted Courage (Stephen Ambrose) and Sagajawea (Ann Lee Waldo).

I don't like many history books, but love this one! You have to read it!!!!!
