Sacajawea was only 16 when she made one of the most remarkable journeys in American history. She traveled over 4,000 miles by foot, canoe, and horse, all while carrying a baby on her back. Without her, the Lewis and Clark expedition might have failed. Two hundred years later, we still can see how her unique journey demonstrated the strength and value of women.
The Women Who Broke the Rules series celebrates the bold and brave women who have forged their own paths--breaking rules along the way--to help shape our country's past, present, and future. Acclaimed author Kathleen Krull blends history and humor in this accessible young biography series.
