When Naiche Visits the Stars (Hardcover)
Naiche, a mixed-race girl, dreams of one day making spaceships like her parents who work for NASA. While her mother teaches her the ways of the Apache and Chickasaw, she imagines an encounter with aliens from Zotoc. Will she one day be able to fly to meet them?
Erika T. Wurth is the author of a number of books for adults--but this is her first picture book for kids. She's a professor at Western Illinois University, and a proud stepmother and auntie. She is of Apache/Chickasaw/Cherokee descent. She lives in Colorado with her partner and her two incredibly fluffy dogs.
