The beasts were beautiful and like none he had seen before. Curiosity leads a young warrior to track a new animal. It leads him far from home, but at last he finds a herd of the strange creatures.
These horses shimmer with color and run swift as the wind. The young Lakota warrior captures and tames them, and his people grow rich and powerful. They become filled with pride and use the horse to rule over the Plains. Then the Great Spirit, who gave the gift of the horse, takes it away.
Donald F. Montileaux retells the legend of Tasunka from the traditional stories of the Lakota people. Using the ledger-drawing style of his forefathers, he adds colorful detail to this ancient tale. His beautiful images enhance our understanding of the horse and its importance in Lakota culture.
