...Walking Along...

Plains Indian

Foreword Review — Spring 2012

“A compendium of trouble, disaster, fun, and examples from which to learn,” this book follows six mischievous adventures of Iktomi, the Lakota name for the American Indian “Trickster.” As he encounters animate forces in the wind and trees, as well as ever-present creatures such as mice, buzzards, prairie dogs, and a coyote, Iktomi repeatedly makes poor, selfish decisions and refuses to learn from his mistakes. Strikingly illustrated by Caldecott medalist Paul Goble. Ages six to nine.
