Star Boy Paperback - 1991

by Paul Goble

An all-new foreword by the author explains the rich Blackfoot symbolism used in his artwork, adding new depth to the powerful legend of the Sun Dance depicted in this long-time favorite. "The brilliantly colored, stylized art is at once transcendent and comprehensible".--The Horn Book. Illustrated in full color.


Summary

Star Boy was the son of Morning Star and an earthly bride. He was banished from the Sky World for this mother's disobedience and bore a mysterious scar on his face, the symbol of the Sun's disapproval.
As Star Boy grew, he came to love the chief's daughter, and it was she who helped him find the courage to journey to the Sky World and make peace with the Sun. The Sun not only lifted the scar but sent Star Boy back to the world with the sacred knowledge of the Sun Dance, a ceremony of thanks for the Creator's blessing.
