Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Scott S. Floyd
With the rising of each full moon, Grandpa dusts the kids with cedar smoke, places his hat on the bed in front of him and shares a full moon story. Eagle Walking Turtle and his sister sit with their grandparents after dinner and the chores are finished. Their grandfather tells the stories of his grandfather's grandfathers so that they may pass through the generations. With masterful language and artistry, Eagle Walking Turtle recalls these tales from his childhood on the Northern Arapaho Indian Reservation. Whether the tale is about the horse, dog, or even the mole, both classroom students and families delight in these stories. The legends weave together the importance of humans and animals in both the current and past lives of the Native Americans.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Remembering his and his sister's childhood with grandparents on the Arapahoe Reservation, the author retells 13 of Grandpa Iron's tales, one for each full moon of the Plains Indian traditional year. Before and after each story, details about the children's lives are presented; each piece ends with the phrase, "And the Earth stayed young." The brief stories are not set off typographically from the reminiscences and are rather disappointing. They tell about the coming of the horse to the people; a woman chief who was cured of rudeness by hearing a story about a moose family; a healer who learned from bears how to use plants; etc. Each selection is illustrated with a full-page painting of the animal featured in the story. Painted in bright colors and covered with symbols, the creatures float against textured backgrounds; the figures are reminiscent of Plains Indian paintings on tepees and hides. Smaller, crayon sketches also appear. Storytellers will find more accessible Native American stories in Margaret Mead MacDonald's Twenty Tellable Tales (1986), Look Back and See (1991, both Wilson), and Peace Tales (Linnet, 1992). Joseph Bruchac's Native American Stories (1991) and Native American Animal Stories (1992, both Fulcrum) each have 24 legends from various native peoples that emphasize caring for the Earth, told in a dignified style suitable for older listeners.Pam Gosner, formerly at Maplewood Memorial Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
The ritual of storytelling is given as much prominence as the 13 Native American tales themselves, first heard by Eagle Walking Turtle as a child.

Approximately once a month, during the evening of the full moon, the author's grandfather would gather the children near the stove for a story and hot tea. The stories and primitive illustrations show native peoples' ties to animals such as the moose, the horse, and the magpie. While the stories are entertaining, they also express the interrelationships of all the world's creatures. The story about the buffalo, for example, is more of a remembrance of buffalo's historical importance to Native Americans and of their ongoing reverance for it. As the seasons change, so do the children's activities that act as frames for the stories: Winter means school, summer is the time for the powwow and for visiting friends. Ultimately, it's the connection of the stories to the teller and listeners' lives that makes the book special.
