"Exploring Lewis and Clark: Reflections on Men and Wilderness," by Thomas Slaughter.
Some historians and native Americans don´t accept the evidence indicating that Sacajawea died as a young woman.

Their arguments are presented in "Porivo´s Story," a chapter in Slaughter´s book. Knopf; 256 pages. $24
