Leo Yerxa, an artist of Ojibway ancestry, brings us this visionary, beautiful art book in which he celebrates wild horses and the natural world in which they lived in harmony. Using an extraordinary technique he makes paper look like leather so that his illustrations seem to be painted on leather shirts. Each unique leather shirt is laid on a page and is accompanied by a rich, wild, free song of praise for the wild horses that came to play such an important role in the lives of the First Peoples. Author and illustrator of the noted and multi-prize-winning Last Leaf, First Snow Flake to Fall, Yerxa has once again devoted years to creating a book that is simply a piece of art reflecting his sense of nature and the place of native people within it.
With rich illustrations that makes each page look like a leather shirt, tells the proud tale of wild horses in the natural world and the special importance they had in the communities of the First Peoples.
