The acclaimed author/artist has created this book as a loving tribute to his mentor, Chief Edgar Red Cloud, who adopted Goble when he arrived from England to the Great Plains as a young man.The retelling is dramatic and lively; the superb illustrations are meticulously rendered. Glimpses of wildlife give intimacy to vistas of the Great Plains, and magnificently graphic and bold paintings bring out all the drama of this Lakota tale of treachery and adventure.
