This title is suitable for ages 4-8. This is an original tale in the Commanche oral tradition, written by a 10 year old boy and illustrated in full colour by a gifted Cherokee artist. Telling how buffalo came to be, the story underscores courage and compassion and pays homage to the Native American reverence towards animals taken for food.
