About the author (1984)

Paul Goble grew up in England, where he developed a deep interest in the culture of the Plains Indians. In 1977, he came to live and study in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Greatly influenced by his adoptive father, Chief Edgar Red Cloud, and other Native American people, Paul Goble has created an outstanding body of work that celebrates Plains Indian culture. His distinguished books include the Caldecott Medal-winning "The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses", "Buffalo Woman", "Dream Wolf", "Her Seven Brothers", "Adopted by the Eagles", and "Storm Maker's Tipi".

Paul Goble says, "Throughout my books I have tried to reflect the special Indian feeling of mystical relationship with nature." The "New York Times" describes Paul Goble's work as "a marriage of authentic design and contemporary artistry," declaring, "it succeeds beautifully." His artwork resides in a number of collections and institutions, including the Library of Congress and the South Dakota Art Museum.

Paul Goble lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota with his wife, Janet. He was recently named an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters by South Dakota State University in Brookings.
