This powerfully simple story shows the view that the early Native American had of the world in which he lived; his relation to others, to the plant and the animal worlds, and to his place as a link between his family's past and its future. In words of one syllable you are shown the sublime beauty of being connected to and contented with one's place in the vast scheme of things.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
