    Gr. 1-2. This title from the All Aboard Reading series gives a simple account of the life of Sacajawea. Milton concentrates mainly on the years of the Lewis and Clark expedition, but she also describes Sacajawea's early life as the captive of an enemy chief and reflects on the conflicting reports on how she died. (According to one report, she died of fever as a young woman, while another states that she returned to the Shoshones in old age.) Hehenberger uses warm colors and rounded shapes to create a series of attractive illustrations with a good variety of composition layout. Readers meeting Sacajawea for the first time will find her a brave and sympathetic figure, treated with dignity and respect in this appealing book for beginning readers.
