Winner of the 1995 Christopher Award "Books for Young People" Category. This best seller by the innovative team of Matthaei, Grutman and Cvijanovic is a visually stunning fictional account of a young nineteenth-century Sioux warrior's quest for knowledge that takes him from the plains of his childhood to a far-off boarding school where he learns the ways of the white world and the value of his own traditions. A hand-calligraphed tribute to the narrative pictographs recorded by Plains artists in the ruled ledgerbooks they acquired in trade, the weaving of Cvijanovic's richly detailed original illustrations in the "ledger" style into a simply written story inspired by actual events holds appeal for young readers and those who wish to learn about American Indian art and history.
