My next book in collaboration with another writer—-

May be about Edmonia Lewis (half Native American and half Haitian) who came from selling moccasins at Niagara Falls to setting up a successful sculpture studio in Rome in the 1860’s.  A truly gifted artist who rose above poverty and bias to become one of the greatest sculptors of the nineteenth century.  Here is one of her pieces showing a Native American man and his daughter.Lewis - The Wooing of Hiawatha 1866
