About the Author

Paul Goble has received wide acclaim for his magnificent books, including Buffalo Woman, Dream Wolf, Her Seven Brothers, and the winner of the 1979 Caldecott Medal, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. Commenting on his work in Beyond the Ridge, Horn Book Magazine said, "striking elements synthesize the graphics with the narrative and spiritual aspects of the text." The New York Times Book Review noted that his technique is "a marriage of authentic design and contemporary artistry, and it succeeds beautifully." Paul Goble's most recent book for Bradbury Press, I Sing for the Animals, was called "a lovely, small book that movingly conveys profound belief in the goodness of creation" by Kirkus Reviews, and School Library Journal said it "fits as easily in the hand as Goble's meditations about the natural world do in the heart."

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"Caldecott Medalist Goble has created a stunning prayer of praise. . . Goble's instantly recognizable illustration style is at its best, from the herd of charging wild horses on the cover to the snowy mountain on the final page." Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Goble's sweeping vistas . . . show a gorgeous cross-section of God's gifts to the world." Children's Literature
"The author . . . here combines the song of praise to God from creatures and elements of the earth with distinctive watercolor illustrations in his signature style. . . . Many parents and church schools will find this lovely book an asset, both to help children see the relationship of an ancient religious text to our own time and place and to make vivid the timeless world of the Black Hills."
