Publisher's Summary

Before the expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the United States stopped at the Mississippi River. However, their journey opened up the wilderness borders to the Pacific Ocean. The key to the success of this 18 month journey was a young Indian girl - Sacajawea. Without her, the corps of discovery would have been doomed from the start.

Beautiful story, told straight out, no embellishments, a realistic picture of an Indian girl's acceptance of the white men, of Lewis and Clark, of their journey and the hardships they encourtered. I certainly acquired a warm appreciation for all of their individual struggles, and the dignified way they had of handling any problems they encountered. There was no crying but lots of heart tugs and smiles.

Very enjoyable for the whole family!

I loved the story and the history. It took me a bit to get used to the narration as it seems to be directed as story time for kids.

A good middle school story

I enjoyed the characters and the simplicity of the storyline. The author could have given more background information.

I love how the narrators portrayed the expedition! They truly pulled me into the story. I may have to listen to it again in the near future!

I was shocked at the pleasure this book gave me!

If this book was placed on a reading list for all Junior H.S. students, this would become a better world for all of us.

Sacajawea’s voice is not native.

Sacajawea’s voice is unbearable. I’ve read the book but can’t listen to it. I don’t believe the voice as native, what a shame.
