The Making of a Legend


Author: Rick Book

This is the story of 16-year-old Sacagawea, who served as a guide and interpreter for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their seminal journey to the Pacific in 1804-06. Captured by a rival tribe, then sold and married to a French Canadain fur trader, Sacagawea joins the famous party, the only woman. Soon outshining her husband's translation ability with her knowledge of three languages, as well as finely honed survival skills, she becomes a favorite of Clark's and indispensible member of the team.
