About the Author:

David A. Adler's "Picture Book Biographies" have been hailed as an "expert mixture of facts and personality" (School Library Journal) and "handsomely designed" (Booklist). Mr. Adler is also the author of the "A First Biography" series for readers aged 7-11, as well as a number of novels and Judaica titles. He lives in New York with his wife and three sons.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-In this brief biography, Adler decribes how Sacagawea was kidnapped at the age of 10 or 11 by an enemy tribe, was sold as a second wife to a rough white trader and trapper who served as an interpreter on the Lewis and Clark expedition to the Pacific, and assisted the expedition through her quick thinking and ability to communicate with other tribes. Unfortunately, none of the horror of her situation-being captured, her family murdered, her forced marriage-comes through in the straightforward text. Brown's illustrations are often at odds with the historical setting. The art is pure Hollywood, particularly the reunion between Sacajawea and her brother, with the young woman fully made up with lipstick and eye makeup. Faces are static, figures are awkwardly posed, and action scenes lack movement. Young readers may be interested in learning about the remarkable woman who graces the new dollar coin, but this story doesn't do her justice.
