Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A Caldecott Honor is among the awards won by the late Baker's story, originally published in St. Nicholas Magazine in 1915. Little Wolf rides on his pony at night to the lake where, legend has it, a buffalo herd arises and thunders across the prairie. The boy guides the buffaloes, and they defeat enemies out to attack his people; thus Little Wolf becomes part of the tale he loves. PW remarked that ``Gammell's drawings, full of haunting visions and action, surpass his most admired work.'' (610)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
After hearing the legend retold by the tribe's oldest member, Little Wolf hopes to someday witness the beginning of the buffaloes at the sacred lake. Early one morning, Little Wolf unhobbles his pony and heads south, starting an adventure that will end with a wild and unforgettable ride through the night to save his people. Olaf Baker captures the sights and sounds of the great prairie that is Little Wolf's home, and Stephen Gammell's black and white drawings bring the mighty buffaloes to life as they sweep with a terrifying roar out of the lake.
