Description
For the tribes of the American plains in the Buffalo Days of the pre-reservation life, horse raiding was a chance for men to show their courage and bravery in battle. “No man can help another to be brave,” says grandfather to fourteen-year-old Lone Bull, “but through brave deeds you may become a leader one day.” Lone Bull wanted to be a warrior and he knew he could be victorious in a horse raid if only given the chance! But when Lone Bull’s father refuses to let his son and his best friend join the raid, what do the young boys do? They set off to follow the group with the help of grandfather! Will it all end in disaster?

Master storyteller Paul Goble brings to life this exciting and timeless coming-of-age story of Lone Bull, a young Lakota boy eager to join the warriors on a horse raid against the Crow. This newly-revised edition features digitally enhanced artwork, completely revised text, a brand new layout, and a fascinating “Foreword” from world-famous storyteller Joseph Bruchac.

Reviews of Horse Raid: The Making of a Warrior

“Paul Goble's Horse Raid: The Making of a Warrior tells of young Lone Bull, who has always dreamed of being a warrior and proving his bravery in battle through being a horse raider. But his father won't let him join the raid: how can he prove himself? His decision to sneak off and follow the warriors results in danger and newfound wisdom. [This, and Jacqueline Jules' Never Say a Mean Word Again] are powerful recommendations for youngsters looking for folktales about bravery, ethics and heroism.”
