I liked the simplicity and beauty of nature portrayed through a child s eyes I was confused though, as to why Grandmother was basically left to die couldn t she at least rode horseback This is a great

Sacagawea s childhood caring for other children, talking with her friend, working with her mother and grandmother to make a basket, dress, and so on In the book, her beloved grandmother is not able to travel with them at one point, and so asks to be left behind in a little hut This is a little sad, as she clearly doesn t expect to see them again, but not written in such a way to overwhelm a child The experience of being captured by an enemy tribe is written very mildly also, and later when she returns to her tribe as a married woman with the Lewis and Clark expedition, there is not the sense that she has been miserable but just that she s happy to see her brother again and yet still very willing to leave again on the expedition west As an adult I realized how difficult her life must have really been and I wondered if her husband actually had two wives based on some of the information in the text but a child would not have the same sense of the challenges and instead will likely be

there was just a lot of things about the world I did not know that completely change the relationships of the characters in this book I was forced to wander off into the wonderful world of cyberland in search of concrete facts concerning Sacagawea s life The only concrete historical evidence I have found so far have been from Lois and Clarks journal of their adventure What do we really know about this young girl In Louis and Clarks journal she is referred to as a slave, pregnant mother, and young girl probably around the age of 16 She gave birth to her child got up and continued carrying on all the responsibilities placed upon her during the expedition I am truly disturbed by the fact that this was taught to me as a child Well I either hated the saccharine portrayal of Sacagawea s abduction and marriage to a French trader or I hated Sacagewea s personality as portrayed by this historical fiction book Since the author left out the discussion of Indians and politics and statutory rape I decided that I actually hated the book Children shouldn t believe that abduction and marriage to your captor is okay under any circumstances The trapper should have been shot for buying women I would have given it no stars bu Well I either hated the saccharine portrayal of Sacagawea s abduction and marriage to a French trader or I hated Sacagewea s personality as portrayed by this historical

she does to serve and help everyone It was really meaningful and had lots of emotional times and happy that is what I think makes a book good.I would give it 5 stars if it was a littlechallenging to read. I thought the book Sacagawea was very exciting I learned a lot of interesting facts about Sacagawea and and her adventure The only thing I disliked about the book was that it was a Biography and I prefer to read fiction books. I loved this book it was great But I want to knowabout the adventure with Lewis and Clark Other than that it was really good
