During the fur-trapping era of the early 1800's, with two rambunctious young sons to raise, Marie Dorionr refuses to be left behind in St. Louis when her husband heads west. Faced with hostile landscapes, an untried expedition leader, and her volatile husband, Marie finds that the daring act she hoped would bind her family together may in the end tear them apart.History records that on the journey, Marie meets the famous Lewis and Clark interpreter, Sacagawea, who- like Marie- is pregnant, married to a mixed blood man of French Canadian and Indian descent, and raising a son in a white world. Together, the women forge a friendship that will strengthen and uphold Marie long after they part, even as she fights for her children's very survival. With courage and faith that can only be fueled by a mother's love, she endures. Her story reminds us that women are ground together in history, now and forever.
