Sacagawea: Women Who Broke the Rules
Sacagawea: Women Who Broke the Rules by Kathleen Krull.
"Well-behaved women seldom make history." —Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
Many awe-inspiring women have changed the course of history. From social justice to women's rights to discovering and shaping our amazing country, there's nothing women haven't left their mark on. But it's not easy to affect change, and these women didn't always play by the rules to make a difference! Kathleen Krull blends history and humor in this accessible young biography series. Sacajawea was only sixteen when she made one of the most remarkable journeys in American history, traveling 4,500 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, she remains a revered historical figure.
