About the Author
After graduating from University of Maryland (B.A. and M.F.A.) he was asked by the Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., to paint the murals for its bicentennial celebration; these paintings launched his career.
Robert lives in Rockville, Maryland, next to a stream and is often visited by deer, turtles, beaver and muskrats.
One of my favorite books for young readers, not just for the beautiful illustrations but for its poetic, memorable text. No children's writer I know has done a better job of putting our traditions into the context of modern times while also dealing with the issue of mixed-blood ancestry in a way that is both honest and heart-lifting.--Joseph Bruchac, author of Jim Thorpe's Bright Path
