Where the Buffaloes Begin (Picture Puffin Bks.)

by Olaf Baker

"Over the blazing campfires, where the wind moaned eerily through the thickets of juniper and fir, they spoke of it in the Indian tongue—the strange lake to the southward whose waters never rest. And Nawa, the medicine man, who had lived such countless moons that not even the oldest member of his people could remember a time when Nawa was not old, declared that, if only you arrived at the right time, on the right night, you would see the buffaloes rise out of the middle of the lake and come crowding to the shore; for there, he said, was the sacred spot where the buffaloes began." Ten-year-old Little Wolf, an imaginative and courageous boy, is determined to observe this spectacle, and his quest leads not only to a miraculous vision but also to the salvation of his tribe. This Caldecott Honor picture book and National Book Award nominee was hailed by Booklist as "an eminent picture book and, incidentally, one that proves that black and white can move as forcefully as color." The New York Times praised artist Stephen Gammell for his "spectacular scenes of tumbling clouds, of earth churned by flying hoofs, of teepees in the early dawn. But most of all he conveys the hulking, surging, rampaging strength of the shaggy buffaloes as they rise out of a shadowy mist, the mist of legend or dream."

Where the Elf King Sings

by Judie Wolkoff

[from inside flaps] "The Vietnam War.. For the Breckenridge family (mother, father, Marcie and David), the war hasn't ended yet. Years after Daddy returned wounded from combat, he's still haunted by the vision of his best friend dying in front of him---and still getting drunk to forget. Now he's lost his job. Marcie is sad, and angry, too. Her head spinning with taunts about her father from schoolmates, she pulls her bike up at the old graveyard on Route 119. Her friend Dominique has said something nasty about a curse connected with that graveyard and Daddy... Enter Mrs. King who prowls cemeteries in her rubber hip boots and bright red lipstick, sprucing up headstones of "friends" and war dead dating back to 1775. She takes the Breckenridge kids under her wing, and with her vibrant soul and shining wit, throws light into the shadows of their lives. They begin visiting her, not in graveyards, but in her wondrous pile of a house on Leghorn Drive. All in secret. Then their father disappears. And even Mrs. King--for a while--can't help. Judie Wolkoff's story, like Mrs. King, touches the heart of a family that finally breaks free--still together--from the clutches of war."

Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May?

by Jean Fritz

Where was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May? Languishing on a sack of salt in his country store? On the floor of the House of Burgesses speaking against England's stamp tax? In the green Virginia woods fishing and imitating birdsongs? At the royal governor's palace being elected governor? The truth is that all his life as planter, lawyer, statesman, things seemed to happen to Patrick Henry on the 29th of May. And no matter where he was he might be orating. Patrick Henry had a good ear (he even taught himself to play the flute when he was stuck indoors with a broken collar bone) and what people called a "sending voice." What he cared most for was his native Virginia and her freedom. Jean Fritz' keen eye for humorous and humanizing detail, her insight into the Revolution, and her unconventional approach make for a revealing and colorful portrait of Patrick Henry --from practical joker to passionate Virginian.
