" Bonitas historias y bonitas ilustraciones. Este libro es bastante corto, pero muy agradable de leer. " said.

" First of all I love anything that Paul Goble does so maybe I am just a bit on the bias side. But who really can't love these stories? There is the story itself told from one of many tribes or in the case of two of these stories combined from various tribes then followed along with beautiful yet very detailed drawings not only of the characters but of the nature around plus the animals that you would see in their daily lives.

This was a beautiful collection of stories that I absolutely cherished while I had only read one of the three before. And what makes it even more special in my opinion is it feels that there were actually four stories but you need to harvest the pages from all the stories to get the fourth, which is the history of dog and horse since the first had dog to help the Native Americans in moving, which continued in the beginning of the second story. From there you are introduced along with the characters in the story to the horse and by the last story the horse has become fully entrenched in the lives of the People.

Paul Goble also does a beautiful job in bringing the lessons of the People to the reader whether it is sacrificing for the rest of their community or enjoying nature, which they held kinship with. It also shows a certain freedom in making choices even thought we may not understand them.

And then again there is the gorgeous artwork. Paul Goble brings so much in his artwork whether you can feel the aloneness of a single character emphasized by a single butterfly or the power of the porcupine. He also does an amazing job in portraying the indigenous animals, natural environments like a canyon in the night or even native vegetation but out of all the animals that he decorates his pages he most specializes in the American Buffalo (Bison bison) in my opinion whose ferocious strength shown to perfection.

Altogether I am really please with this collection and am hoping that the author may come out with some other collection of his stories. This is truly a keeper for those who are interested in these types of story.
