Charbonneau (1805-1866) was a man of two worlds, Anglo/Indian and genteel/frontiersman. How he balanced these worlds makes him an intriguing character study in a complex West. Sacagawea's son, he rode in his Shoshone mother's cradleboard for 4,000 perilous miles with Lewis and Clark (1804-06), but that was only his beginning. The extensively researched text, based on documents gathered from archives, libraries and historical societies, places him in major events throughout the West. Personal relationships, period life ways and conflicts are revealed, along with some controversial interpretation. The extraordinary connection between the Charbonneau family and William Clark also is explored.
