Here’s an excellent book that I just finished reading. Written by Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space, Find Where the Wind Goes is an inspiring look at her life. Here’s the book’s description below:
As a young girl, Mae Jemison knew she wanted to travel to space‹and she refused to be discouraged. Through a lifelong dedication to her dream, she eventually made history when she blasted into orbit aboard the space shuttle Endeavor. Smart, and full of life, her anecdotal account is inspiring and entertaining.
