Path to the Pacific : The Story of Sacagawea (Reprint) (Paperback) (Neta Lohnes Frazier)
About this item
The classic story of Sacajawea for young readers in a new, illustrated edition.
Seldom given the credit she deserves, Sacajawea is one of America's true heroines. Without her assistance as a guide and interpreter, the Lewis and Clark Expedition would never have crossed the Rockies and reached the Pacific Northwest - and the course of U.S. history would have been changed forever. Master Western storyteller Neta Frazier, author of The Stout-Hearted Seven: Orphaned on the Oregon Trail, tells the story of this courageous Shoshone woman from the time when she was kidnapped as a young girl by a Hidatsa war party, through her amazing journey with Lewis and Clark, and finally to the mystery surrounding her final years and death.
