- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 August 2002
Gr. 2-4. This collection of paintings and original stories expresses the teachings and cultures of woodland and plains Native American tribes, highlighting the relationships between humans and wildlife. Fifield's watercolor artwork, rich in earth tones and Indian symbols, depicts animals, including crows, moose, and deer interacting with humans as equals. Themes emphasize the natural world, particularly lifecycles and seasons, including events such as naming ceremonies, aging and death, and rebirth during spring. Each folkloric-style tale is presented on a double-paged spread; the artwork dominates with the text superimposed on a birchbark background. Fifield and Erdrich, who are both of Native American descent, offer a good choice for a primary-grade read-aloud or for classes studying Native Americans.
