Aussie Game Meats
Sacred to the Plains Indians, buffaloes provide almost all the people need to live and flourish on the Great Plains. When the buffalo cannot be found, scouts are sent to look for them...
By telling about a time of hardship, Paul Goble dramatizes the central importance of the buffalo to a vibrantly spiritual and artistic culture. He pictures the vastness of the empty plains, the excitement of discovering the Buffalo Woman, and the thundering return of the herd with superb artistry, bringing us a world that must not be forgotten.
Six new titles in this popular adventure series feature animals from the ocean to Africa to Australia. Child adventurers become wildlife tourists and make firsthand observations about the animals. According to Booklist, "This engaging and original take on a perennially popular subject will be a welcome addition to school and public library collections." A child goes on an African safari and observes the behavior of Cape buffalo in the wild as they defend their herd.
This fascinating picture book biography tells the childhood story of Buffalo Bird Woman-a Hidatsa Indian born around 1839. Through her true story, readers learn what it was like to be part of this Native American community, which lived along the Missouri River in the Dakotas, a society that depended on agriculture for food and survival rather than hunting. Using original artwork and archival photographs, award-winning author/illustrator S. D. Nelson has captured the spirit of Buffalo Bird Girl and her lost way of life. The book includes a bibliography and an index, as well as an author's note and timeline of events.
