Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 September #1
    "Packed with fast action and detailed analysis, these new titles in the Sterling Biographies series blend the stories of Native American leaders with the history of their peoples, distinguishing myth and reality by documenting what really happened and focusing on ordinary people as well as chiefs and warriors. Contrary to myth, Sacagawea explains that the Shoshone teen was not a princess, her relationship with Clark was platonic, and she was a peace symbol rather than a guide until they finally reached the Shoshone tribe. The series' spacious design is highly scannable, with color background screens, photos, maps, and historic prints throughout; also included are a detailed time line, glossary, bibliography, and fully documented notes."
