A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Both an exciting and terrifying prospect, people venture out and leave the security and comfort of the people, places and things they know for many reasons. This selection of illustrations by Paul Goble features multiple stories of people setting out on difficult journeys into the unknown, and the leap of faith required to do so. Books featured in this exhibition include: Adopted by Eagles, Beyond the Ridge, Buffalo Woman, Crow Chief, Dream Wolf, Death of the Iron Horse, The Gift of the Sacred Dog, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, The Great Race, Her Seven Brothers, Lone Bull’s Horse Raid, The Lost Children, Love Flute, The Return of the Buffaloes, and Star Boy.
This exhibit which spans Sept. 28, 2019 through May 3, 2020 will be temporarily off display Jan. 26 – Feb. 21, 2020.
