This is a great book for the Lewis and Clark enthusiast, for it was on that exploration that Sacagawea’s child, Pomp, was born. This monograph outlines his explorations, and like his parents, Jean-Baptiste lived an adventurous life. By way of this text, the reader has the opportunity to share in these journeys, from the early Corps of Discovery days, through European travel, and onto the western expansion to California. Throughout his sixty-one years, Jean-Baptiste remained loyal to his mother’s Indian heritage and his father’s customs. The book also highlights the strong connection and influence William Clark had on the young Charbonneau. This well-researched text contains a chronology of the Charbonneau family, extensive notes, illustrations, maps, and a thorough bibliography.
