The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo
A Child, An Elder, and the Light From An Ancient SkyBook - 2013
"In this moving finale to the trilogy that began with Neither Wolf Nor Dog, Kent Nerburn blends history, humor, and heartbreak with a gripping mystery. Once again he visits the Dakota elder Dan and joins in the quest to understand the fate of Dan's little sister, Yellow Bird, a girl with a mystical relationship to animals who disappeared into the Indian boarding school system. Delving beneath the myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes that make up so much of our understanding of Native life, Nerburn finds a world that "beats with a different and indomitable heartbeat." Readers are swept up into a great story of the awe-inspiring communion of human, animal, and nature that underlies the many things we can learn from our land's native people"-- Provided by publisher.
