Tasunka: A Lakota Horse Legend
Curiosity leads a young warrior to track a new animal. It leads him far from home, but at last, he finds a herd of the strange creatures. These horses shimmer with color and run swift like the wind. The young Lakota warrior captures and tames them, and his people grow rich and powerful. They become filled with pride and use the horse to rule over the plains. Then, the Great Spirit, who gave the gift of the horse takes it away. Donald F. Montileaux retells the legend of Tasunka from the traditional stories of the Lakota people.
