jeanette on 3/2/2015 8:58:23 PM says: I liked when Sacagawea kept going on the journey and didn't give up she was determined. But the thing I didn't really like was when she risked her son Meekos life to keep going on the journey but all in all atleast she got a little bit of freedom from being a slave. As you can see this book is really good no matter what happened it will always be inspiring to me.
