The Man Who Dreamed Of Elk-Dogs & Other Stories From The Tipi - A Children's Book
How did horses first appear to the peoples of the North American plains?
According to the legends of the Blackfoot Indians, a wise man dreamed of strange animals in a far off land: they were as tall and strong as elk, but could be tamed like dogs and ridden to hunt buffalo. After traveling for many days, he came across the strange animals drinking at a lake. Managing to catch first one and then the whole herd, he brought them back to his people. In this third collection of "stories from the tipi," Caldecott-medal winner Paul Goble masterfully brings to life 23 traditional Plains Indian stories.
