For Ages 4 to 8. Author and artist Paul Goble has created a stunning picture book as an interpretation of Plains Indian spiritual tradition.
The story at the heart of this book is the death of an old woman and her subsequent spirit journey. Once she is safely "beyond the ridge" the story focuses on the woman's family and how ritual helps them mourn and then accept her passing. Goble's portrayal of Native American beliefs is accurate and respectful, the universal wisdom the book contains will give comfort and insight on a subject that troubles readers of all ages.
