West Palm Beach, Fl.: Lickle Publishing, 2003. Fine. Bound in teal cloth to resemble a ledger book, with full color paste down on cover. Winner of the 1995 Christopher Award, Books for Young People category. Inspired by the richly detailed picture stories of the Plains Indians--sometimes drawn on ruled ledgers--this book is a visual feast that introduces children to pictographic art. This fictional account, based on historical fact, tells of a young Sioux warrior's childhood adventures on the plains and his journey East to the white man's school. Full-color.


From the Publisher


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 more about Native American art and history.
