Summary, etc.: When Short Tail climbs the mountain to find the Great Bear, he tires, falls asleep, and slips into a dream in which the Great One reveals a marvelous secret.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 April 1997
    Ages 6^-9. As spring comes to the mountains, a great bear remains sleeping. His absence is noted, and village people worry that the grandfather bear has not survived the winter. So great is the concern that one young boy from the village climbs high into the mountains to look for the bear. Exhausted by the climb, the boy dreams of finding and waking the bear. Together boy and bear join other bears dancing "to the rhythm of thunder." It is this dance that the boy later teaches his people. Hobbs' fictionalized version of the traditional Ute bear dance story is enhanced by the large picture-book format featuring Kastner's double-spread oil paintings, in which the illustrator cues the dream sequences, subtly exposing the bear and the boy as part of the landscape. Kastner's evocative dance scenes add a fine note of drama to the story. ((Reviewed April 15, 1997)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
