From the Publisher:
"How can you buy the sky? How can you own the rain and the wind?" So begin the moving words attributed to a great American Indian chief--Chief Seattle--over 100 years ago. They are words that eloquently capture the central belief of Native Americans: that this earth and every creature on it is sacred. It is this belief that inspired Susan Jeffers' extraordinary full-color paintings.
Annotation:
A picture book version of a speech given by Chief Seattle. The Chief's plea for the respectful preservation of nature was originally presented before the Commissioner of Indian Affairs in the 1850s in response to United States Government attempts to purchase land from his people. Illustrated with colorful ink drawings.
