Show Me History! Sacagawea: Courageous Trailblazer!
What did 33 men in the 1800s need to find their way through the wilderness on a trip across America? They needed a woman - and they found one in Sacagawea, the Native American teenage mother who helped the Lewis and Clark expedition survive. She and her baby braved floods, hunger, storms, and snakes to help the expedition that opened the West. Sacagawea: Courageous Trailblazer! tells the life story of this amazing pioneer who endured hardship in her youth but nevertheless became a fearless leader and a role model for generations to come.
