Each group of stories is prefaced by a brief factual account of Indian beliefs and of storytelling customs. "Indian Legends of the Pacific Northwest" is a treasure, still in print after fifty years.

Sacagawea of the Lewis and Clark Expedition by Ella E. Clark Sacagawea of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Paperback (September 1983)

The legend tells us of Sacagawea ("Bird Woman") as the guide showing Lewis and Clark the way over the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean, and fictionalized accounts have embroidered on her life as it might have been. In fact, however, her life as it might have been. This historical account separates the verifiable facts about Sacagawea from the legend.
