About the Author

Brave Bird at Wounded Knee: Rachel Bithell writes about history, culture, and science for kids and their caregivers. Her writing has been featured in several national magazines. This is her first book. As a foster and adoptive parent and former teacher, she has cared for and taught many children with diverse strengths, interests, backgrounds, and needs. For all these children, storytelling has served her as an invaluable tool for connecting and learning.

Light a Candle: Jean Kuo Lee is a Chinese American writer. Born and raised in the United States, she is the daughter of immigrants. Her family roots stretch across the dry steppes of Northern China and the borders of the Korean peninsula, over waters to the island of Taiwan. She earned a B.A. in English Literature from UCLA and enjoyed inheriting the literary tradition of the West. Now, she lives in California and is the proud mother of two bookworms whom she homeschooled for many years. She writes fiction and nonfiction books for curious kids.
