After reading "A Journey Across the Pacific: The Story of Sacagawea," I learned more about the history of the U.S. In 1803, a large amount of land acquired from France was bought by Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the U.S. The 828,00 sq mile land costed over fifteen million dollars. Although Americans were finally building on to their vast amount of land, they needed people to discover it. Thomas Jefferson ended up choosing two captains, Lewis and Clark, who would later lead the Lewis a ...more

This book about Sacagawea or Sacajawea is an easy to read and
helpful primer into the life and adventures of Sacagawea. I think
it does a very good job of showing how she helped the Lewis and
Clark expedition and what personal and physical hardships she
had to overcome during the journey. It does a nice job in helping
us understand her life prior to the expedition and how she had to
make some very tough decisions about her future and dreams in
deciding to assist the expedition. It is nice to read about

I really enjoyed reading about the era that this book was in; the Lewis and Clark era. It was very interesting to read about how much Sacagawea did for the expedition crew, all while carrying baby on her back! I enjoyed seeing how the author had to guess how Sacagawea was feeling because she didn't keep a journal entry. However, this book did seem a bit monotone. I wished there were more details about some of the events that happened, but this isn't entirely the authors fault, since Sacagawea di ...more
