In alternating chapters, William Clark and Sacajawea recount the experiences of the Lewis and Clark journey, each providing their own view and interpretation of particular events. Sacajawea comes to life as the expedition's interpreter and peace maker, and her accounts are particularly moving, perhaps because of the use of traditional storytelling in the chapters told from her point of view.
Kirkus Reviews called this book "a grand adventure and an inspiration that is not to be missed." And Publisher's Weekly reassures readers that "the author adheres closely to journals kept by members of the expedition, creating characters who are both lifelike and compelling."
