Could Stands-by-Herself’s mysterious rock save her Cheyenne people?  Only if it isn’t a rock at all!  Life often asks us to follow our hearts, even when the path is difficult.

“What a great story, and indeed how very good it is to see illustrations which are painted with real knowledge and love for the nomadic peoples who lived on tthe Great Plains.  Aho-aho!

                                                                                                                         --Paul Goble, author/illustrator, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses

“The Thunder Egg is one of those rare books that is a treat and an education for both the eye and the mind.  Its clear poetic text and luminous pictures tell this traditional teaching tale with clarity and respect.”
