Gift Horse is an evocative introduction to 19th-century Native American life on the Great Plains. When his father gives him a gift horse, marking the beginning of his journey to manhood, Flying Cloud and the horse, Storm, spend their days hunting and roughhousing with other boys and their horses. But when an enemy raiding party steals his beloved Storm, Flying Cloud faces the ultimate rite of passage: he must join the rescue party and earn the right to wear the shirt of a warrior. Bold, colorful artwork inspired by the style of the early Plains Indians tells the story of a boy facing the challenges of manhood. Included is an author's note about the Lakota people and their culture. The author is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.
