(Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, Sept. 30, 1992)
In love with a beautiful girl, but too shy to summon the courage to tell her, a young man leaves his camp in frustration. One night he receives mystical visitors, who share a special gift with him; a gift from the birds and animals. It is a gift that tells the girl of the young man's love. With exquisitely detailed paintings and superb storytelling, Paul Goble here celebrates the magical power of nature, the richness and intricacy of Plains Indian culture, and the beauty of a legend that speaks directly to the heart.
