9780811829083: The Sketchbook of Thomas Blue Eagle

"My story begins in 1885 when I was eighteen winters..."
In eloquent and often illuminating prose accompanied by engaging illustrations, this fictional sketchbook picks up where award-winning The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle left off. Much of the details of Blue Eagle's remarkable travels through Europe are based on fact, providing an accurate view of what life might have been like for a young Lakota Indian at the end of the nineteenth century. The period format and handlettering, designed to replicate an original sketchbook from the era, add to its timeless appeal. And the well-researched, beautifully written text will engage readers of all ages as they follow the adventures of Blue Eagle. Complete with an informative afterword by Lakota Elder Arthur Amiotte, The Sketchbook of Thomas Blue Eagle is a compelling portrait of Native American history and will captivate historians, art lovers, and children alike.

About the Author:

Gay Matthaei lives with her family in Connecticut. Together with Jewel Grutman, she is the author of The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle .

From Publishers Weekly:

A companion to The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle, The Sketchbook of Thomas Blue Eagle by Gay Matthaei and Jewel Grutman, illus. by Adam Cvijanovic, begins in 1885, when Blue Eagle is "eighteen winters" after his graduation from the Carlisle School. "White soldiers had wiped away the footprints of the Lakota from our lands," the Black Hills of the Dakotas, writes the hero. Cvijanovic's pictographic illustrations record Blue Eagle's meeting with Buffalo Bill Cody and the inception of his Wild West Show. As a plus, a faux-Remington portrait of Blue Eagle makes an appearance here.
