When his father gives him a gift horse, marking the beginning of his journey to manhood, Flying Cloud and the horse, Storm, spend their days hunting and roughhousing with the other boys and their horses. But when an enemy raiding party steals his beloved Storm, Flying Cloud faces the ultimate rite of passage. He must join the rescue party and earn the right to wear the shirt of a warrior. Bold, colorful artwork inspired by the style of the early Plains Indians illustrates the day-to-day life of the Lakota and tells the story of a boy accepting the challenges of manhood. An authors note gives a brief history of the Lakota and explains the traditions discussed in the story.
