KIRKUS REVIEW

 A book like a gallery tour narrated by an earnest, engaging artist. Littlechild, of the Plains Cree Nation, explains 17 of his vivid mixed-media paintings on Native American themes. Incorporating feathers, beads, sequins, shells, gummed stars, photos, toy horses, and rhythmic patterns of dots, bars, and scratched lines, his pictures (and text) are superimposed on pages printed to look like yellow leather. In words and images, a personalized expression of the pain and beauty of Indian history and culture. (Picture book. 6-10)
