I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company by Brian Hall

I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company: A Novel of Lewis and Clark - Brian Hall

I wanted to like it, but I couldn't take the style of writing for Sacajawea's chapters.  I get what the author was trying to do, but it made for really difficult reading, what with no capitalization of proper names and rambling sentences to only vaguely explain things.  It didn't really make it feel like she was on equal footing with the other characters.
