"A story of an Indian girl who feels such a kinship with the wild horses grazing near her village that she eventually becomes one of them. Elaborate double-page spreads burst with life, revealing details of flowers, insects, animals and birds. Both storytelling and art express the harmony with and the love of nature which characterize Native American culture".--The Horn Book. Full color. A Caldecott Medal Book.
PreS-Gr 2-Paul Goble's beautifully-told, Caldecott Award-winning book (S&S, 1978) receives a fine treatment in this book and tape set. It is the tale of a Native American girl whose tribe follows the buffalo. She tends the horses, and grows to love them so much that eventually she joins them. Accompanied by Native American music, the story is clearly and lovingly read by Lance White Magpie, and sound effects help bring it to life. One side of the tape includes page-turn signals, while the other does not. Audio quality is excellent. This would make a good listening center for units on Native Americans, art, or horses.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
