Item Description...
In 1804 Lewis and Clark and a small band of adventurers calling themselves the Corps of Discovery set off on a great journey into the unknown. Along the way they met a young Shoshone woman who would make an invaluable contribution to the expedition. With a baby strapped on her back, Sacagawea negotiated with native peoples, helped the expedition survive when food was scarce, and, ultimately, contributed to leading this small band of intruders on a trip lasting more than two years through the Indian land to the Pacific Ocean. One summer, Peter Lourie and his family traveled in the footsteps of Sacagawea to learn about her from the native peoples who now live along her trail. As the Louries traveled the historic route, they grew closer to American history and to understanding the woman who contributed so much to the early expansion of the United States.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great read for parents and kids  Apr 8, 2001
Not only is Peter Lourie a talented writer, but now, after reading On the Trail of Sacagawea, my kids think that his family is much more exciting than ours! Or, to put it another way, this book has inspired us to think more creatively about the kinds of trips we'll be planning in the future. Why go to Disneyworld when we could be out exploring the real world? My entire family thoroughly enjoyed this book. Reading about Sacagawea's world some 200 years ago, and the present day journey shared by the Lourie family, gave us all something to think about and to discuss. The book provides a valuable glimpse into our history while at the same time it illustrates how really rewarding family experiences can be. I recommend this book to every parent who is eager to have something of substance to talk about with his or her child, and who would like to enourage reading and a sense of wonder and excitement about the world we live in.
Another masterpiece!  Apr 8, 2001
...Reading Mr. Lourie's books truly brings history to life, and adds present day perspective to the tales they've read in their social studies books. In this book particularly, my children were able to relate to the Lourie's children, on a family vacation, traveling such an historic route. How lucky those children are to have a father who can bring to life the stories of Sacagawea, and how lucky are we that he writes it all down for us to share! My young neighbor brought the book to school and her teacher used it as she taught about Sacagawea. Our whole family is anxious to read about Mr. Lourie's next journey!!
An excellent book for kids!  Apr 7, 2001
My two daughters loved seeing the author's children included in this adventure. Lourie's photographs are amazing. They depict the wild terrain, the rivers and the mountains, that Sacagawea covered with Lewis and Clark in 1805-1806 on their way to the Pacific. From this book, I learned details about the expedition I had not known before. It's a great introduction to Sacagawea and the monumental feat accomplished by the Corps of Discovery. After reading ON THE TRAIL OF SACAGAWEA, I will keep my eyes out for other books by author Peter Lourie.
