Dance in a Buffalo Skull
Zitkala-Sa, S. D. Nelson (Illustratör)
Dance in a Buffalo Skull is a tale of late-night frolics, danger, and survival on the prairie. Join tiny field mice for a great feast and dance inside an old buffalo skull. Out of the dark, two fiery eyes glide through the prairie grass, drawing closer to the mice who are oblivious in their merrymaking. What happens next reveals as much about the mice as about their unexpected guest. This Prairie Tale recreates a world in miniature, with elements of classic fairy tales and traditional fables, and its messages still resonate today. A traditional American Indian story passed orally from generation to generation, it was translated in English and written down by Zitkala-Sa in 1901. Contemporary Lakota artist S. D. Nelson has created vibrant pictures that add drama to the story. He fuses traditional Lakota Indian styles with modern interpretations to provide visual clues to ancient words. "The art blends Lakota tradition and modern styles to match the tall tale and bring it to life."--The Midwest Book Review "Nelson's illustrations add to the tension between the creeping wildcat and the celebrating mice."--School Library Journal "The narrative tension builds deliciously . . . This tale would be perfect in a scary story time, told with the lights down low."--School Library Journal "An enjoyable story faithful to the original legend."--The Midwest Book Review
