Books by Terra Trevor, and containing her work

Pushing up the Sky
“Terra Trevor’s ‘Pushing up the Sky’ is a revelation of the struggles and triumphs packed into the hyphens between Korean and Native American and American. From her, we learn that adoption can best be mutual, that the adoptive parent needs acculturation in the child’s ways. With unflinching honesty and unfailing love, Trevor details the risks and heartaches of taking in, the bittersweetness of letting go, and the everlasting bonds that grow between them all. With ‘Pushing up the Sky’ the ‘literature of adoption’ comes of age as literature, worthy of an honored place in the human story.” 
—Robert Bensen

Pushing up the Sky, tells Terra Trevor's motherhood story of challenge, joy and deep loss. She is currently at work on a memoir focusing on friendships with the elder Native women who came into her life after that difficult period. Over three decades, these women lifted her from grief, instructed her in living, and showed her how to age from youth into beauty. Reflections on the deep power of female friendship, on losing a child, reconciling complicated roots, and finding richness in living every stage of life, these stories show us the end is always a beginning. Forthcoming.
