Sacajawea of the Shoshone

Written by Natasha Yim and illustrated by Albert Nguyen

Published by Goosebottom Books

Publisher's Summary

One minute she was picking berries and the next her tribe was under attack. Running for her life, Sacajawea was scooped up and taken far away from her village and family—and into history. From her mountain home to the banks of the Missouri River, over the majestic Rockies to the pounding waves of the Pacific, Sacajawea would travel farther than any American woman of her time.

Richly illustrated and smartly narrated, this book brings to life the story of the real and remarkable Shoshone princess who helped Captains Lewis and Clark navigate their way across the American West.

Natasha Yim

I'm the author of six picture books: OTTO'S RAINY DAY (Charlebridge Publishing 2000); CIXI, THE DRAGON EMPRESS (Goosebottom Books, 2011); SACAJAWEA OF THE SHOSHONE (Goosebottom Books, 2012), GOLDY LUCK AND THE THREE PANDAS (Charlesbridge Publishing, 2014); THE ROCK MAIDEN (Wisdom Tales Press, 2017.); and MULAN’S LUNAR NEW YEAR (Disney Worldwide Publishing, 2018). GOLDY LUCK AND THE THREE PANDAS was a Junior Library Guild and a Scholastic Book Club selection, and was nominated for the 2017 Illinois Monarch Reader’s Choice Award. My nonfiction articles have been published in the children’s magazines “Highlights for Children”, “Faces”, “Appleseeds”, and “Muse". "The Elephant Queen" which appeared in the February issue of Faces, received a Letter of Merit in the 2013 SCBWI Magazine Merit Awards. My math concept picture book, YUM YUM, DIM SUM! has just been acquired by Charlesbridge Publishing, and I'm currently working on my first middle grade novel. When I’m not writing, I love to travel, hang out with my family, binge on Netflix shows, and play with my dog, Juneau.
