The picture book Mission to Space features pictures of Herrington, a Chickasaw, training to be an astronaut and then traveling to the International Space Station, where he performs various duties. The book includes an English-to-Chickasaw vocabulary list with space-related terms.
Herrington was born in Wetumka, Okla. The mission he writes about took place in 2002. In 2015 he spoke at the first-ever White House Tribal Youth Gathering in Washington, D.C. He lives in Lewiston with his wife, Margo Aragon.
