Description

Written by Darcy Whitecrow, Ojibwe and Dakota and a member of the Seine River First Nation, and Heather M. O'Connor, children’s author. Illustrated by Lenny Lishchenko, Ukrainian-born and Canadian-raised. Translated by Kelvin Morrison.


“Elders say they were always here. The horses were small, but strong.”
“Like me?”
“Like you.”

As they await the birth of a new foal, a man teaches his grandchild about the Ojibwe Horses that used to roam the forests of northwestern Ontario. The horses once ran wild and free, but when Grandfather was a boy, they almost disappeared. Now he is the caretaker of his own small herd, keeping the breed alive for future generations and teaching his grandchild about the loving bond between human and animals.
