About This Book
A blind Native American boy named Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses begs Grandfather to tell the stories of the night he was born and of a great race.
In this poignant story, the counting rope is a metaphor for the passage of time and for a boy's emerging confidence facing his greatest challenge: blindness.
"While classified as an Indian story, the love, hope, and courage expressed are universal". — Booklist, starred review. Full color.
