U.S.A. - BROOKINGS-SOUTH DAKOTA - Illustrations from Star Boy - Paul Goble

Goble was born in England in 1933 and realized his love for Native American culture as a child. He moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1977 where he drew inspiration from the stories and traditions of the Plains Indians. His books retell ancient cultural stories and his accompanying illustrations depict vivid, colorful scenes with accurate images. Goble has written over twenty books that have won praise from the American Library Association, the National Council of Social Studies, the International Reading Association and the Children's Book Council amongst others. Goble's artwork resides in several museums and institutions, including the Library of Congress though his entire collection of original illustrations was gifted to the South Dakota Art Museum in 1977.
