Inspired by actual events, Nicio and the Cedar Fire is the tale of a Native American fireman who, ignoring evacuation warnings; fights to save his own home from a devastating forest fire; reminisces about his family and childhood; dreams about pre-columbian Mesoamerican gods: and is ultimately saved by a Thunderbird.

Written by his sister Gina and Illistrated by his sister Rosario. Nicio dropped into the Old Well to discuss the book, its role in his life; his career as a fireman and his compassion for the victims of Cedar Fire; the wildfire that burned 280,278 acres, claiming 15 lives and 2, 232 homes.
