The Star People: A Lakota Story

The Legend Of the White Buffalo

Availability: Out of stock
Author and Illustrator: Paul Goble

A beautiful woman appeared to the Lakota people at a time of great change and suffering. She gave them the pipe that has been part of their culture ever since, saying Wakan Tanka, the great spirit. . . smoke, and you will know he hears you. She is called the White Buffalo Woman because after giving the people this gift, she changed into a buffalo, reminding her tribespeople of their ties to nature.

In stirring prose and some of his most breathtaking images, widely celebrated author and illustrator Paul Goble brings this important legend to life. Goble includes an introductory note, detailed drawings of the peace pipe, and information about Pipestone Quarry, a National Monument central to this story.
