“A stylish look at the fate of Sacagawea’s baby son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau… Increasingly haunted by his mother, Baptiste revisits her in memories and visions that lend themselves nicely to Sargent’s lyrical prose… an impressively rounded portrait of the laid-back, introspective, nomadic Baptiste.”
