Paul Goble has received wide acclaim for his magnificent books, including "Buffalo Woman, Dream Wolf, Her Seven Brothers, " and the winner of the 1979 Caldecott Medal, "The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses." Commenting on his work in "Beyond the Ridge, ""Horn Book Magazine" said, "striking elements synthesize the graphics with the narrative and spiritual aspects of the text." The "New York Times Book Review" noted that his technique is "a marriage of authentic design and contemporary artistry, and it succeeds beautifully."
