Reviews of Earth Made New

“What a beautiful book! The illustrations would tell volumes all by themselves, but paired with the text they offer an extremely approachable entry into Plains Indian creation stories and mythology. An a non-Native American reader, I’ll have to say that this is the book of Native American mythology that has most made a connection for me and has somehow allowed me to understand and ‘live” in the mythology more than any other book.”
Midwest Book Award Judging Panel



The Earth Made New: Plains Indian Stories of Creation is the recent offering of Caldecott Medal-winning author/artist Paul Goble, creator of The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, Buffalo Woman, and Mystic Horse. Illustrated throughout with beautiful, crisp, clean colored paintings, The Earth Made New tells many of the mysterious details of creation stories of the Plains Indians of North America. The text is spare but haunting, with many starred footnotes added to the pages to enrich the stories with further details or variations, each of which could be imagined to begin another whole story cycle of its own. Thus we have the feeling or effect of the presence of a true teller of the sacred tales when we hold and read The Earth Made New. Joe Medicine Crow gives high praise in his forward, saying, ‘Paul Goble has done a good job of presenting the Plains Indian story of creation.’ The Earth Made New will appeal to children (and their parents) age 6 and up.”

In this foreword to Paul Goble's book Earth Made New: Plains Indian Stories of Creation, renowned Crow elder and tribal historian Dr. Joe Medicine Crow adds the Crow story of creation (centered on Old Man Coyote) to enrichen Goble's presentation. Medicine Crow then provides the setting for how such tales were transmitted from elders to the young in earlier times. He concludes by praising the care and authenticity that went into this book and by remarking that there is great value in such books that preserve traditional wisdom for generations who no longer receive it as they did in earlier times.
