About the Author:

Stormy Rodolph was raised on a ranch. She grew up with horses and is still deeply involved with them. While studying journalism she was a member of the Montana Indian Club and is concerned with giving people an as accurate as possible interpretation of the Native American Heritage.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Disabled by an accident that occurred when he was 9, 13-year-old Lame Bear resents his leg injury more than ever as his friends join the tribe's hunting parties for the first time and he is left behind with the women and children. An elder chief's counsel gives the boy the courage to pursue his own vision quest, and Lame Bear returns triumphantly to his tribe. Despite a predictable ending, the story, first published in 1984, is a satisfying adventure replete with details about the Blackfeet, their country, and horsemanship. As the third book in The Council for Indian Education series, it is a solid, accessible offering for middle-grade readers. Karen Hutt
