AT THE MOUNTAIN'S BASE
In AT THE MOUNTAIN'S BASE, a family, separated by duty and distance, waits for a loved one to return home. This lyrical picture book celebrates the bonds of a Cherokee family and the bravery of history-making women pilots.
With an author's note that pays homage to the true history of Native American U.S. service members like WWII pilot Ola Mildred "Millie" Rexroat, this is a story that reveals the roots that ground us, the dreams that help us soar, and the people and traditions that hold us up.
