Come join Ancestry Books on Saturday, March 7th from 7-9pm at The Lowry Cafe where we will be hosting a reading and book signing with Erika T. Wurth, author of Crazy Horses Girlfriend. “…Wurth has created a plethora of hardened teens and their means of survival in unforgiving conditions. The story’s protagonist narrator is Margaritte, whose insistence on not becoming a loser truly earmarks her as an underdog, as she struggles to go against the grain of her impoverished society. The language Wurth uses, which includes Lakota terminology, is raw and visceral, reflecting just how tough these teens are, especially Margaritte. […] Kudos to Wurth for producing a gripping and heart-wrenching narrative that is not only a must read for young adult and older readers, but also a wonderful addition to Native American literature.” ~Story Circle Book Reviews Erika T.
