What Is This? -

This is a historical novel of a Shoshone tribe girl named Sacagawea.  The ebook contains 16 chapters.  The story takes place in 1809 in the mid/north west.  She and her sister were kidnapped when they were young teens.  The tribe that took them made them slaves and then wives.  During this time, she met 'Man-With-Red-Hair', also known as William Clark.  He accompanied another white man named Meriwether LewisShe found both men quite interesting.  She watched Lewis make scratches in his journal, and she respected both men unlike her husband.  Sacagawea was treated badly by her husband, but she kept hope that someday she would make it back to her Shoshone tribe and homeland. Clark & Lewis, unlike her husband, treated her as an equalThey knew that she was a hard worker, smart, and he respected her.   

A few years after she was kidnapped, she gave birth to a son.  She didn't realize how much she could love someone that much.  She would love and protect him with everything she had inside her.
Shortly after the birth of her son, Lewis & Clark were about to journey through unknown land and they knew that Sacagawea was familiar with this land.  They needed her.  She knew the land was her way back to her homeland.    She went on that hard long journey and it would change her life.   

This book takes you right into the life of Sacagawea and lets you be there with her through her life experiences before and during her journey with Lewis & Clark.

How We Used This e-Book & What I Thought -

I read this to my 9 yr. old son 3-4 times per week.  I wasn't sure if he was going to be interested in this book.  A book about a Shoshone girl's life didn't seem too appealing at first to him.  But as I read, he started asking questions....which is a very good sign.  

This ebook is filled with interactive links that have loads of information.  For example, when the book told us about the men 'digging out canoes', the link connected us to a video of a man actually digging out a canoe.  My son loved that!  We watched that video a few times.  Another link we liked was when it described their clothing such as moccasins and leggings, the link showed us pictures of what they looked like.  Another link showed us buffalo hooves and told all about them.

We felt like we were really in the storyThe story displayed detailed maps to show where their journey started and where they traveled.  We didn't have to spend time searching for pictures on the internet or through books because the links were all there and they took us right to the examples and videos.  All the information packed in this book is not only amazing, but they were right at my fingertips.   

We really enjoyed this book and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to teach their children about the different indians, their lives and the journey of Lewis & Clark.  It was a wonderful experience.
