Phyllis Cole-Dai & Amber Fick Discuss "Beneath The Same Stars"

Chris Laughery

In the Moment ... May 6, 2019 Show 569 Hour 1

Sarah Wakefield wrote one of the most well-known captivity narratives of the late 1800s. She wrote it just more than a year after being released from captivity.

South Dakota author Phyllis Cole-Dai has written a book of historical fiction based on Wakefield's life. It's called Beneath the Same Stars. It's a look at the deeper story of Wakefield's life enmeshed as it was in the events of the U.S./Dakota War of 1862.

The author is at the Siouxland Libraries downtown branch Monday to talk about the book. She's joined on In The Moment by librarian Amber Fick.
