Reviews of The Woman who Lived with Wolves & Other Stories from the Tipi

The Woman Who Lived with Wolves & Other Stories from the Tipi is another classic amalgamation of traditional story and art by Caldecott medal winning author/illustrator Paul Goble. Featuring treasured tales from Cheyenne, Blackfoot, Arapaho, Pawnee, Kiowa, Ojibwa, Mandan, and Lakota traditions, this collection is stunningly enhanced with 45 color paintings of unusual imagination, channeling many Native traditions and designs. The Woman Who Lived With Wolves presents a dazzling array of traditional wisdom tales from many Native cultures, each with its particular message, hero or heroine. Each story teaches something important and valuable about the interrelatedness of animals, nature, and human beings. Each must seek to understand and respect the sacred threads that bind them in life together. There are many teaching tales from many Buffalo days tribes and nations. Here in The Woman Who Lived with Wolves we are fortunate to be given a treasured look into a living past fraught with danger, hunger, hope and courage. The Woman Who Lived with Wolves is suitable for children ages 8 and up, as well as caring adults close to them.”
Midwest Book Review



“This is the second collection of stories of the old Buffalo Eaters, or the Plains Indians, recorded from 1890 to 1920, and retold and illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Paul Goble for World Wisdom Press. The stories share themes of courage, strength, and the connection to other beings, including animals, required to share and survive in this world. Forewords by Goble and Navaho leader and educator Vivian Arviso Deloria help readers place the stories in context. The tales themselves, and the stylized illustrations, provide plenty for adults and children alike to ponder. For ages eight and older.”
