Author Interview: Debra Magpie Earling (The Lost Journals of Sacajewea)

I’m joined for an incredibly interesting conversation with author Debra Magpie Earling, author of the new historical fiction novel The Lost Journals of Sacajewea.

Among the most memorialized women in American history, Sacajewea served as interpreter and guide for Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery. In this visionary novel, acclaimed Indigenous author Debra Magpie Earling brings this mythologized figure vividly to life, casting unsparing light on the men who brutalized her and recentering Sacajewea as the arbiter of her own history.
