A powerful, moving tale of tradition, family, loyalty, duty, and kindness set against the vastly lovely backdrop of the Great Plains. Bold, gorgeous illustrations inspired by the style of the indigenous people of the Great Plains and written by a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, this Own Voices tale is as universal as it is beautiful. Like the best books, this also includes author's notes for further mind expansion on Lakota culture and tradition.
About the Foundry Family Children's Library: Curated by Heather, who came to our Foundry Family by way of iconic Minneapolis children's bookshop Wild Rumpus, the Foundry Family Children's Collection are the kinds of books that illuminate wonder, that tell deep human truths with gentle grace and good humor, and that move humans of all sizes with their simple, honest loveliness. We like to think of them as "new heirlooms", beautiful, timeless tales suitable for telling again and again (and again and again and again).
