it was amazing
bookshelves: diane-s-favorites
Recommended to Diane by: my mom.
Recommended for: anyone willing to ride an emotional rollercoaster.

Simply put, this is the most amazing story I know and the book is incredibly written. i read this very long book about 14 years ago, and I remember my mother reading it about 10 years prior to that. I still have the actual book that she and I read. It's very special to me, not just for the connection to my mother, but because the story of Sacajawea is so well depicted within it's covers. I remember laughing on one page, then sobbing to the point of having to put the book down on the next. It's depressing, enlightening, romantic, devastating, heart-warming. It's real.

I cant wait to read it again and pass it down to my daughter.

Elaine Harvey I read this in 1978. Twice. An incredible historical novel. My oldest daughter read it. Twice. My nephew and my two sisters. It is an emotional roller coaster read and I love the way she interlaced some fiction with the Lewis and Clark papers. Have now read five times and will probably read it again. Thanks, Ms. Waldo for your dedication to writing this novel.
