A dramatic retelling of a Comanche legend of how Texas became known as the blue bonnet state.
"Come every spring
the bluebonnets cling
to prairies the showers renew.
Come, gather near,
settle down, and you’ll hear
of how the first bluebonnets grew."
This beautiful Comanche legend of how a young girl sacrifices her most precious possession, even as the bravest men refuse, to save her land and people from a terrible drought, is retold here in dramatic verse and striking full-color paintings.
