Anthropologist Tom Johnson, a long-time fieldworker among the Eastern Shoshone Indians, unfolds a captivating story of mistaken identity, manipulated facts, and disputed legend involving Sacajawea, the young Shoshone who accompanied the Lewis and Clark expedition. For over a hundred years, many have believed Sacajawea rejoined her people at Wind River where she died and was buried in 1884. Conclusive evidence surfaced in the 1950s that the woman in that grave was not Sacajawea. Through his careful unraveling of Shoshone oral tradition, bolstered by the discovery of a key historical document, Johnson strips away decades of cover-up to reveal the Wind River Sacajawea's true identity without discrediting Shoshone history and values. The reader is invited onto a contemporary reservation to share in conversations with Native people who have a stake in both perpetuating and disputing the legend of Sacajawea. Also Called Sacajawea touches upon a universal ethnohistorical theme: the elevation of oral tradition to honor the beliefs about ancestors. It also illuminates how the dominant culture imposes its values and attitudes on Native people.

"Your woman who accompanied you that long dangerous and fatigueing rout to the Pacific Ocian and back diserved a greater reward for her attention and services on that rout than we had in our power to give her at the Mandans." - William Clark in a letter to Sacagawea's husband "Ocian in view! O! The Joy!" - William Clark, journal entry dated November 7,1805 It is the most fabled and storied journey in American history. From 1804-1806, the first expedition across the North American continent was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, who had recently bought a vast swath of territory from France. Though he knew he had bought a huge amount of land, Jefferson wasn't entirely sure of what he had bought, so he asked a team led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to traverse the continent until they reached the Pacific, studying everything from the ecology to geography along the way to get an understanding of the country's new region. Lewis and Clark would find far more than they bargained for. The 33 members who made the trip came into contact with about two dozen Native American tribes, many of whom helped the men survive the journey. Though they suffered deaths on their way west, the group ultimately reached the Pacific coast and got back to St. Louis in 1806, having drawn up nearly 150 maps and giving America a good idea of much of what lay west. Sacagawea is one of the most famous Native American women in American history, and few played such a central role in the settlement of the West for the young nation. As a young woman who was married to a French trapper from Quebec, Sacagawea happened to be in the right place at the right time for the legendary Lewis and Clark expedition, which set off for the Pacific coast after President Thomas Jefferson negotiated the Louisiana Purchase with France. The young Shoshone girl acted as a guide and interpreter for the expedition, helping it safely travel thousands of miles west from North Dakota to the Pacific over unfamiliar ground and amongst unfamiliar peoples. Put simply, the expedition could not have succeeded without her. Sacagawea's role in the Lewis and Clark expedition made her a national figure, and she continued to be popularized in literature and even among groups advocating for women's rights. Sacagawea is still taught to every American in school and stands alongside Pocahontas as the most famous Native American women, even though few people knew much about her life aside from her role in the trek. For that reason, few truly know about her life, her tribe, or her death, the latter of which is still controversial. At the same time, given the history and conflicts between the United States and various Native American tribes during the 19th century, Sacagawea's role in helping the nation push westward at the expense of Native Americans has taken on a more mixed and controversial character. Sacagawea and the Lewis & Clark Expedition profiles the lives, legends, and legacies of the famous explorers and their expedition, Along with excerpts from contemporary accounts, a bibliography an pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Lewis & Clark Expedition like you never have before, in no time at all.

When Lewis and Clark set out in the spring of 1804, they had chosen to go on an extremely dangerous journey. Unlike others in the group, two key members did not choose to join the hazardous expedition: York, a black man who was Clark¿s slave, and Sacajawea, a native woman considered to be the property of a French Canadian trader named Charbonneau, who was the expedition¿s translator. The unique knowledge and skills Sacajawea and York had were essential to the success of the trip. The dual stories of these two outsiders, who earned their way into the inner core of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, shed new light on one of the most exciting and important undertakings in American history. Ages 7-12. Full-color illus. Reinforced bind.

So many myths surround Pocahontas and Sacagawea that the fascinating true stories are often obscured. This book offers an original perspective on two of the best-known, least-understood women in American history,? said Landon Y. Jones, author of "William Clark and the Shaping of the American West," in an advance review. ?"Pocahontas and Sacagawea" brings the legacies of these famous women and their peoples up to the present. This rigorously researched work of nonfiction focuses on the personalities and adventures of the American west." Ms. Berck's groundbreaking book adds an important new dimension to the story of western migration and the European settlement of America. ?The nation-building set in motion in Jamestown, and accelerated by Lewis and Clark, led to terrible consequences for American Indians,? Mrs. Berck observed in a recent interview. ?Yet, not all of the interactions between whites and Indians were brutal. There appeared to be genuine friendships between Pocahontas and John Smith, and between Sacagawea and William Clark.' Mrs. Berck weaves the stories of these two Native American heroines with those of their friends, kin, and contemporaries, tracing a slice of American migration from the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, Virginia, across the Appalachian Mountains, through the land of the Cherokees, to St. Louis, up the Missouri River, and finally to the Pacific. ?We meet John Smith, Daniel Boone, and William Clark on this journey,? Mrs. Berck continued. ?We also meet the famous mountain man James Beckwourth, who was a friend of Sacagawea's son, and a Northern Paiute woman named Sarah Winnemucca, whose family gave its name to a town in Nevada. These cross-cultural relationships are important to understand," the author said in closing. "I see them as hopeful alternatives to the territorial and cultural conflicts so common in our world today.'

Gateways to Westward Expansion is a teacher resource for history teachers and will complement the standard history curriculum, providing choice and flexibility for teachers by offering strategies which deepen understanding of historical content while developing reading skills. Covering ten topics pertinent to the development of the western United States from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century, the authors focus on presenting lesser known voices and viewpoints of groups impacted by the steady westward march of Euro-American settlement. Each topic is introduced through a gateway literature selection counterbalanced with a primary source document. Fiction is the emotional hook, which engages students in a time period while the primary source document develops content. Providing teachers with organizational structures, bibliographies and reproducibles to facilitate ease of implementation, this title is useful to teachers as they introduce historical eras and aide students in finding project ideas for the National History Day competition--all the while integrating the teaching of reading--a NCLB response and introducing students to primary source documents, another tested concept. Each chapter offers sparks for inquiry. Grades 4-12.
