Benavidez writes, “’The Last Indian Child’ is based on a true story of the author’s husband’s grandmother. Elise Benavidez has spent twenty years researching the family history. It was an impossible task. The Apache Indians didn’t record dates of birth. She had to interview family members and check government records, military, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and census records. She was so surprised to discover her husband’s grandmother was the daughter of a well-documented Apache chief, Chief Victorio.”
Published by Page Publishing, Elise Benavidez’s fascinating tale describes the life of Alcadia Martinez Benavidez and the Native American people.
