Goble, Paul. Love Flute: Story and Illustrations. New York: Bradbury, 1992. Print.
A young man, brave in battle and a leader in the buffalo hunt, is too shy to speak to the woman he loves. Sad and lonely, he wanders far into the woods. There, he meets two Elk men. They give him a a flute that the birds and animals have made for him. When he plays it, the harmony of nature is in his melodies and he speaks straight to the heart of the girl he loves.
Paul Goble was born in Haslemere, England. He studied at the Central School of Art in London and then worked as an art teacher, as a furniture designer and as an industrial consultant. In 1977, he moved to the Black Hills in South Dakota and was adopted by Chief Edgar Red Cloud. Goble was greatly influenced by Plains Indian culture and his subsequent children’s books reflect this. Most of his books, retellings of ancient stories, are told from the perspectives of different tribes among the Native Nations.
