Description
"This beautiful, well-written book [for readers 8 to 13] opens with the years before the Europeans came to America, discussing how the bison and Native Americans came to the New World, the importance of the animal to the survival of the Plains Indians, and the Native peoples' spiritual relationship with the buffalo. The next two chapters discuss how the arrival of the white men brought the horses that improved the hunting techniques and lives of the Native Americans, but also led to the destruction of their way of life and the near extinction of the bison. The final chapter relates the myth of the white buffalo and ties the 1994 birth of a white buffalo to the recent resurgence of interest in Native American ideas, rituals, and respect for the natural environment and the increase in buffalo populations. Each chapter opens with a retelling of a Native myth. [Dorothy Hinshaw] Patent's narrative is clear and her writing is almost lyrical. [William] Muńoz's breathtaking color photos of bison, landscapes, and artifacts are mixed with reproductions of period art and illustrations."—School Library Journal (starred review)
