Revisiting this book in my adulthood was a mistake.I fondly remember Sacagawea as a model of strength and perseverance.I true hero whose effort saved the Louis and Clark expedition.Taking a second look at this novel I noticed some glaring oversights, like the fact that Sacagawea was kidnapped and 'married' off to someone they called her husband.I know I am being a bit judgmental, since I'm looking at this story from my own cultural perspective. This is why I wish I would have never seen this book again.As a child in the 4th grade there was just a lot of 'things' about the world I did not know that completely change the relationships of the characters in this book.I was forced to wander off into the wonderful world of cyberland in search of concrete facts concerning Sacagawea's life.The only concrete historical evidence I have found so far have been from Lois and Clarks' journal of their adventure.What do we really know about this young girl?In Louis and Clarks' journal she is referred to as a slave, pregnant mother, and young girl (probably around the age of 16).She gave birth to her child got up and continued carrying on all the responsibilities placed upon her during the expedition.I am truly disturbed by the fact that this was taught to me as a child.
