Sacagawea: Guide for the Lewis and Clark Expedition: Explorers of New Worlds
Hal Marcovitz (au)
In the early 19th cent. Lewis & Clark led an expedition through an unexplored region of N. Amer. while seeking a route to the Pacific Ocean. However, the Expedition might not have been successful were it not for the help of their Native Amer. guide, a woman named Sacagawea. She helped Lewis & Clark find the safest paths through the region that Pres. Jefferson had acquired from France in the Louisiana Purchase. Beginning in 1804, the Corps of Discovery traveled more than 8,000 miles, crossed the Rocky Mountains, reached the Pacific, & then returned. Along the way Sacagawea helped the explorers communicate with the Native Amer. they met, & helped teach the men how the Indians survived in the wild. This book tells her story. Color illustrations.
