Yuse, a Shoshone boy becoming a young man, feels he is ready for a trip alone across the mountains to visit relatives. His parents know the dangers that he might encounter on such a trip, but what he finds is something more than he ever imagined. In this amazing journey, Yuse learns the value of adhering to the teachings and customs of his tribe. Designed as 4th grade level reading book, it is also a great read aloud for younger students. Written by John Washakie, the great grandson of Chief Washakie, John learned the traditional stories of his people from his Gramma Josie and other relatives who had the gift of making them come to life. Illustrated with full color watercolor pictures by John Cox, the story brings to life the people of the Shoshone Tribe and the places they lived. This is a traditional, Native American story and a vital part of our country's history. PPI and the State of Wyoming has made an effort, through this book, to record and keep for generations to come, these classic stories. Early literacy is enhanced with the inclusion of a glossary of words in the Shoshone language. Captions to illustrations are in Shoshone.
