LEGEND OF THE INDIAN PAINTBRUSH THE (PAPERBACK) COPYRIGHT 1996 PUTNAM JUVENILE

In spring, the hills and meadows of Texas and Wyoming are ablaze with the reds, oranges, and yellows of the Indian Paintbrush. How this striking plant received its name is told in an old Indian legend.

Many years ago, when the People traveled the Plains, a young Indian boy had a Dream-Vision in which it was revealed that one day he would create a painting that was as pure as the colors of the evening sky at sunset. The boy grew up to become the painter of the tribe, but although he found a pure white buckskin for a canvas and made paints from the brightest flowers and the reddest berries, he could not capture the sunset.

How the young Indian artist finally fulfills his Dream-Vision is lovingly told and illustrated by Tomie dePaola, in words and pictures that capture the spirit and beauty of this dramatic legend.

A Tall Texas Tale

At the time I wrote this story in 1987, the Houston Astrodome was a fully functioning, vibrant sports arena. It was the first domed stadium and sometimes dubbed the “eighth wonder of the world” It was the home of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and also the Houston Astros baseball team and the Houston Oilers football team (as they were then called). When I chose the Astrodome as Nick’s home in the story, I remember thinking that it was a ludicrous idea that the Dome could ever be empty and available. I even thought that was more unbelievable than a person who could be as tall as his age! But at this time in 2014, the Astrodome stands empty and is the subject of many local arguments and speculation over what its fate should be-demolition or repurposed facility. Who knows what will happen?

The flights of a lady-bird; or, the history of the winged rambler. Embellished with cuts.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Western literary study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope, Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others. Experience the birth of the modern novel, or compare the development of language using dictionaries and grammar discourses.
