  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/1/2010

    " Book is a mixture of Sacajawea's story as told to her son, excerpts from Lewis and Clark's expedition diaries, William Clark's story as told to Sacajawea's son and Native American legends.
    All good except for William Clark talking to Sacajawea's son. That got a little tedious. "
