Sarah Winnemucca was a full-blood Paiute Indian born in 1844 in Nevada. The Paiute hunted and gathered and lived in wigwams constructed of branches, brush, and hides. Sarah's grandfather, Captain Truckee, befriended the explorer John C. Fremont and went with him to California. Captain Truckee admired White people's clothing and houses and, especially, their ability to write. Sarah went with him on his next trip to California. When they returned, they found that many of their people had died from disease, as the medicine man had predicted. Although Sarah did not receive a great deal of formal schooling, she learned to speak English, Spanish, and two Indian languages. She learned to read and write and coauthored a book called "Life among the Paiutes: Their Claims and Wrongs." She worked as an interpreter, guide, and scout; started a school for Indians; gave lectures to Whites about Indian life; and fought for justice, a better education, and a better life for her people. Contains many illustrations and a timeline of Sarah's life. (Td)
