Citation

Goble, Paul. Her Seven Brothers. New York: Bradbury, 1988. Print.

 

Synopsis

A young Cheyenne girl renowned for her seamstress skills lives contentedly with her seven brothers — until an Indian chief wants her for himself. The brothers and sister escape to the star prairies, where they form the big dipper in this Plains Indian legend.

 

Author

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.
