Among the Nez Perce

Hello reader. This is the site where we get to talk about me, you and the book. As an introduction I want you to know a bit about the proud Nez Perce. I got to know them through research for my novel. I knew I was going to write White Bird before I discovered the profound connection it had to the Nimipu. That is the name they have for themselves. It loosely translates to “People”. They reside in the west central portion of Idaho. Researching the path of migration from the Bering strait, it is apparent that the Nez Perce lived in this area between ten and twenty thousand years. I find that to be awesome. I was born in a different part of Idaho and my first experience with White Bird Pass was at the age of eight. It stayed with me.
It has been a few years since this began.
