Daniel Long Soldier’s illustrations give power to the words of this exceptional book.

 

Big Crow tells the story of how Tashia Gnupa (Meadowlark) and Mesu (Little Brother), her baby raccoon, are inadvertently left behind when her camp is scattered by a stampeding herd of buffalo. She joins the Buffalo Nation and years later returns home to become the mother of warriors. This story is from Eyo Hiktepi’s people, from his family, out of a language that is his own. It makes a world of difference. Daniel Long Soldier’s illustrations give power to the words of this exceptional book.
