Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Goble casts a wide net in exploring Native American legends of diverse peoples of the Great Plains. More than two dozen short tales and poetic bits come from oral traditions of the Blackfoot, Lakota, Cheyenne, and other Indian nations. Many reflect the multifaceted importance of the buffalo in these cultures, and of horses, snakes, and other animals as well. There are creation tales, nursery stories, and episodes of enmity among the peoples, too. Goble's introduction and the foreword by Lakota linguist Albert White Hat both advise the need to listen to the simple stories several times to grasp their full meaning. Goble admits to shortening and reworking the tales, but the tellings seem less fictionalized and closer to their traditional style than the longer renderings in his many single-volume stories. All are set among the artist's handsomely configured signature paintings. Sources for individual pieces are not attributed, but the book closes with an impressive compendium of scholarly sources and collections "mostly recorded during the period 1890–1920." Storytellers, teachers, and children will find tantalizing bits here, and the book would pair beautifully with Joseph Bruchac's The Girl Who Helped Thunder (Sterling, 2008), which has a wider geographic spread, and especially with Goble's nonfiction work Tipi: Home of the Nomadic Buffalo Hunters (World Wisdom, 2007).—Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
