This famous Shoshoni Indian girl served the Lewis & Clark Expedition of 1804-06 as guide and interpreter. Her trek from the Mandan Indian villages to the Pacific Ocean and back is legend. She taught the members to gather wild food, and served as Indian envoy to other tribes, insuring success of the expedition. Her ne'er-do-well French-Canadian husband, Toussaint Charbonneau and infant son, Baptiste, accompanied the journey. Soft bound, 6 x 9" with 214 pages.
