Editorial Reviews

"The Legend of the Buffalo Stone depicts the interconnectedness that many Aboriginal tribes have with animals. Hanata, the heroine of this tale, is also a good example of a strong female protagonist. Recommended for ages 8-11; grades 4-6." —#WeHaveDiverseBooks Catalogue, Association of Canadian Publishers

"This lovely story celebrates the culture and traditions of the Blackfoot Nation, and the plants and animals of their traditional territory. Beautifully illustrated—a delightful book for readers from age 4." >—FernFolio
