Julia Sullivan started working on Bone Necklace more than twenty years ago, after visiting the Big Hole Battlefield in Wisdom, Montana. She first became interested in the Nez Perce story because of the great injustice the tribe had suffered. What kept her interested was their conduct during the war. While under attack, the Nez Perce won the respect of a society in which prominent members were unapologetic racists. At the end of the war, Canada offered them political asylum.
Julia is a lawyer in the United States and a solicitor in England and Wales. Throughout her career, she has worked to expose and root out injustice. Julia lives with her husband in Annapolis, Maryland, and Hamilton, Montana.
