In this new biography of Sacajawea, Candy Moulton reads between the lines of the journals and letters written by members of the Corps of Discovery to provide a fascinating portrait of the Shoshone woman who made possible the success of the venture. The author takes Sacajawea’s story beyond the triumphant return of the Corps to St. Louis in 1806, following the lives of her son JeanBaptiste (b. 1805) and daughter Lizette (b. 1812). Moulton also examines the mystery of Sacajawea’s death and the competing claims that surround it, which have added to the legendary status of this remarkable heroine.
