“A biography of Sacagawea, the Shoshone woman who served as a translator for the Lewis and Clark Expedition.”

Sacajawea of the Shoshone
Written by Natasha Yim & illustrated by Albert Nguyen
picture book
Recommend Ages: 9-13

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.
