Sacajawea: Her True Story

More than 200 years ago, explorers went on a journey to the Pacific Ocean. With the help of a young American Indian girl, the trip was a success. Her name was Sacajawea. This level 4 Penguin Young Readers book is an excellent way to introduce her story to emerging readers.

"Milton concentrates mainly on the years of the Lewis and Clark expedition, but she also describes Sacajawea's early life as the captive of an enemy chief and reflects on the conflicting reports on how she died....Hehenberger uses warm colors and rounded shapes to create a series of attractive illustrations with a good variety of composition layout. Readers meeting Sacajawea for the first time will find her a brave and sympathetic figure, treated with dignity and respect in this appealing book for beginning readers." -- Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
