Lewis and Clark are very famous explores. Sacajawea is equally famous, but how much of her story is fact and how much is pure myth? Beverly Hinds asks such questions as she explores the woman behind the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Sacajawea was not the only guide that was used in the Lewis and Clark expedition. In fact, Darrell Draper would argue that George Drouillard was just as important, because he served as a guide, frontiersman, and the MVP of the expedition.

Darrell Draper also performs as J. Sterling Morton. He was a man active in legislature, Supreme Court, and even served as governor. He is also the founder of Arbor Day. Come see the life and times of Mr. Morton.
