From Pocahontas To Sarah Winnemucca, Remarkable Stories Of Native American Trailblazers

Book Description

The story of Pocahontas saving John Smith is justly famous, as is the cross-country journey of Sacajawea with the Corps of Discovery, and Sarah Winnemucca earned fame by being a champion of her people as the old ways of life were disappearing. But there are lesser known stories of the Native American women who shaped their cultures and changed the course of American history. Illustrated with archival photographs, and encompassing twenty states—from Florida to Washington, Alaska to Maine—and many different tribes, this book brings together these amazing stories.
