Sacagawea, the only Native American included in Lewis and Clark’s historic expedition, joins the inspiring list of heroes whose stories are told in this New York Times Bestselling biography series.
 
Sacagawea was the only girl, and the only Native American, to join Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery, which explored the United States from the Mississippi River all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the early 1800s. As a translator, she helped the team communicate with members of the Shoshone tribe across the continent, carrying her child on her back the whole way. By the time the expedition arrived at the west coast, Sacagawea had proved that she truly was a trailblazer.
 
This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America’s icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero’s childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos.

I love Brad Meltzer’s Ordinary People Change the World Series, these books are informational and inspiring. Sacagawea lived an extraordinary life. As a young mother, on a quest with Lewis and Clark and did not allow herself to confined. This book is perfect for this day and age to teach young girls that they have no bounds. It is important to teach our daughters about the many women that have paved the way for them today. It is important that we teach them they need to also fight for the next generation.

Meltzer’s books tell the story of amazing people and their journeys in such a way that children can follow along with vivid illustrations and the comic book appeal.
