On the Medicine Painter's magic cloth you will live forever, Spotted Deer tells his grandfather, Moose Horn. It is the day George Catlin, the famous painter of Indians, comes to visit their village. Fearing the artist may take away his spirit, Moose Horn refuses to have his portrait made. But George Catlin and the gift of a vision bring Moose Horn to a surprising decision.This story is based on the life of George Catlin (1796-1872), who captured on canvas the great Indian tribes of the American West. Catlin's admiration and respect for the first Americans still speak to us through his portraits, hundreds of which are housed in the Smithsonian Institution.This book was based on extensive research into the life of George Catlin and the culture of the Chippewa. Amy Littlesugar has written several books for children, including: Marie in Fourth Position, Jonkonnu, and Josiah True and the Art Maker. She lives in Maryland.
