The Boy And His Mud Horses
And Other Stories From The TipieBook - 2013
"Imagine that you are sitting on buffalo robes in the tipi, with the fire at the center casting flickering shadows on the painted lining behind you. Someone places a glowing coal in front of the storyteller. He rubs his hands in the smoke, and passing them over his head and body, he purifies himself. The Star People looking down through the smoke hole will be witness to the truth of the stories he will tell. . . ." With this powerful imagery begins Paul Goble's new masterpiece, The Boy and His Mud Horses. Readers young and old will delight to learn how the Cheyenne began to hunt buffalo; how the Blackfoot made peace with the Shoshone; and the cautionary tale of the man who betrayed his wife. These 27 traditional stories from many different Native American tribes, including the Pawnee, Cheyenne, Blackfoot, and Lakota, are all masterfully brought to life by Goble's award-winning illustrations.
