SACAJAWEA The Story of Bird Woman and the Lewis and Clark Expedition

by | Read by Nicolle Littrell, Michael Rafkin

Young Adult • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

The true beauty of this tape lies in the fact that these two voices resonate across time and cultures. Sacajawea's narrative is always prefaced by metaphorical native tales; Captain Clark's story follows excerpts from Meriwether Lewis's text of the ex-pedition. The readings of these cultural brackets are masterful, for we are made fully aware of the differences between oral recitation, reading text, and storytelling. Michael Rafkin eloquently distinguishes between the two Virginian explorers. Nicole Littrell gives us an apt storyteller and a reflective woman, never a stereotyped native voice. Hissing "s's" disrupt the flow but not the impact of this highly entertaining family narrative. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
