Although Felicita likes many of the things typical American children like, including trading cards and watching TV, she also loves the traditions of her Apache heritage, and she especially loves preparing for the rodeo.

Lawrence Migdale specializes in the photography of children in their own environments. He lives with his wife and two children in Orinda, California.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6?This lively, colorful, cheerful book portrays the daily life of Felecita, 10, who lives on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, and chronicles her family's participation in the White Mountain Apache Tribes' annual rodeo. Felecita practices barrel racing and takes part in goat tying, her father rides a bull, and her mother and grandmother are actively involved behind the scenes. Woven into the girl's first-person narrative of year-long practice and preparation are overviews of Apache history, culture, the Sunrise Ceremony, and reservation life today. The book is well illustrated with numerous full-color photographs, and the graphic layout is notably good. What makes this title somewhat unusual is that it rises above the "nonfiction/sports" genre to focus on the intergenerational family that respects and supports Felecita's efforts. This book will appeal to those interested in rodeo, young female athletes, Native Americans, and to those looking for stories that show how a family can work together.?Colleen McDougall, Kayenta Boarding School, AZ
