ALL ROYALTIES EARNED ON THIS TITLE ARE BEING DONATED TO THE ANNUAL DAKOTA 38+2 RIDE
Viviana lived a quiet life in the city, studying and doing everything possible to ensure she was accepted into a good college. She never thought much about who she was or where she came from but all of that will change when her father dies in the line of duty and she is asked to do something she never thought imaginable, participate in the annual Dakota 38 + 2 Ride. It was something that absolutely terrified her but with the encouragement of her uncle and the guidance of her new friends, Dre and Hope, she will discover something within her she never knew existed. She will learn that culture and tradition live within one's heart and cannot be easily forgotten. Our spirit remembers our ancestors and beckons us to them, even if we are reluctant to go. Thirty Eight is a story of acceptance and love while finding one's way back home.

About the Author
Author Tawa Witko lives on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation with her son, Adam Milda and daughter, fellow author, Deanna Milda. They are accompanied by their many animals, an Australia Shepherd/Border Collie mix named Bella, a couple of ornery cats (Edward and Lil Bit) and their horses, Eagle Bear and Wild Spirit. Tawa is a licensed clinical psychologist while Deanna and Adam attend McLaughlin Middle School and High School, respectively. The family enjoys attending wacipis, participating in tribal ceremonies and living a quiet life without the hustle and bustle of the cities. Thirty Eight is the first published work by Tawa and her daughter, Deanna, but it will certainly not be the last. In the coming months they will begin writing a young adult series called The Diakrisis Tales which will center around a 16-year-old girl named Parker who discovers that she can not only see spirits but can interact with them as well. Each standalone book will follow Parker on a new mystery that she must solve. Keep a look out for the first book in the series, An Unexpected Gift, in late 2016.
