A legend-like story features 10-year-old Little Wolf who could run the fastest, catch and ride the wildest pony and knew no fear. As he goes to “where the buffaloes begin” he is catapulted into riding to save his people. Black and white drawings perfectly complement the story which was first published in the magazine St. Nicholas in February, 1915. Excellent and accurate drawings of objects from Little Wolf’s life and culture divide sections of the story. (A 1982 Caldecott Honor Book) (7-11 years)
