A grandmother's love is forever in this story of remembrance and tradition from award-winning author and member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe S. D. Nelson Sister Girl and her brother Young Wolf wander away from their village and soon find themselves far out in the surrounding prairie. They sit down in the grass and watch the clouds passing above billow to form an eagle, horses, and other creatures. Suddenly, animals begin to race past the children on the ground_ã”followed by a wall of fire! Fleeing along with the frightened beasts, Sister Girl and Young Wolf save themselves by tumbling into a shallow stream. The fire leaves behind ash and a barren, forbidding landscape. The children realize that they are hopelessly lost. Night is coming_ã”how will they get home to their parents? And why are the evening stars dancing so? Drawing upon traditional Lakota ledger book art, S.D. Nelson_ã_s illustrations bring to life a memorable new legend about the Star People. Backmatter includes an example and explanation of ledger book art.
