The Star People: A Lakota Story

The Star People: A Lakota Story by S. D. Nelson is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and BooksAMillion.

The Blurb

A grandmother's love is forever 
In this mystical story of remembrance and tradition, Sister Girl and her brother, Young Wolf, wander far from their village and face great danger, including stampeding animals and a wall of fire. The children barely save themselves, and as night approaches, they find themselves alone in the barren and unforgiving wilderness. How will they find home? As the stars shine brightly, the spirit of their grandmother, Elk Tooth Woman, appears to guide them: "The Star People are always with you. Look up, and you will see me among the stars." 
S. D. Nelson's compelling illustrations, inspired by the ledger-book style of the Plains Indians, capture the beauty of humans and nature existing as one.



My Review
The Star People: A Lakota Story by S.D. Nelson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A lovely story to help children deal with the loss of a loved one (grandmother) while also preserving the art of Lakota storytelling. The artwork is simply amazing.
