Publishers Description Introduces children to one of the most inspiring people of the past century. Growing up in the late 1800s, Black Elk saw that the American Indian way of life was in great danger of disappearing. In his old age, he told his life story, in great detail, to writer John Neihardt, allowing the spiritual beliefs, ceremonies, and religion of the Plains Indians to be preserved and passed on to new generations of Indian people. Black Elk fulfilled his vision of protecting his people as the Great Spirit had told him he was meant to do. Through historically accurate illustrations and photos, inspiring age-appropriate activities, and Black Elk's own words, this colorful biography introduces a remarkable person to children in a way they can understand and enjoy. Includes resources for parents and teachers, a list of important words to know, and a timeline of events in the life of Black Elk.
