Gift Horse: A Lakota Story

Flying Cloud receives a wonderful gift from his father --- a horse he names Storm. Flying Cloud loves riding Storm off on the hunt, or just for fun, with his friends. But when Storm is stolen during an enemy raid, Flying Cloud joins the warrior search party and must quickly learn to behave like a man. This coming-of-age story features striking artwork and a look at the day-to-day lives of the early Plains Indians.
