“While as a historian I have long appreciated the story of Sacagawea, I’m not sure I ever really “knew” her – until I read Sacagawea by Karla Akins! This beautiful novel, with its balanced use of adjectives and historical points, paints a color portrait of a woman that most of us have only seen in black and white. For home or school, I highly recommend this enriching “work of art” by Karla Akins.” – Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History
