Sacagawea, the only Native American included in Lewis and Clark's historic expedition, joins the inspiring list of heroes whose stories are told in this New York Times Bestselling biography series.
Sacagawea, the only Indigenous person included in Lewis and Clark’s historic expedition, is the 13th hero in the New York Times bestselling picture book biography series for ages 5 to 8.
Sacagawea was the only girl, and the only Native American, to join Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery, which explored the United States from the Mississippi River all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the early 1800s. As a translator, she helped the team communicate with members of the Shoshone nation across the continent, carrying her child on her back the whole way. By the time the expedition arrived at the west coast, Sacagawea had proved that she truly was a trailblazer.
This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum.
