Brother Eagle, Sister Sky: A Message from Chief Seattle Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Earth does not belong to us. We belong to the Earth. The great American Indian Chief Seattle spoke these words over a hundred years ago. His remarkably relevant message of respect for the Earth and every creature on it has endured the test of time and is imbued with passion born of love of the land and the environment. Illustrated by award-winning artist Susan Jeffers, the stirring pen-and-color drawings bring a wide array of Native Americans to life while capturing the splendor of nature and the land. Children and parents alike will enjoy the timeless, poignant message presented in this beautifully illustrated picture book.

"Together, Seattle's words and Jeffers's images create a powerful message; this thoughtful book deserves to be pondered and cherished by all." (Publishers Weekly )

Illustrated by Susan Jeffers.

Synopsis:

Stirring pen-and-color drawings bring a wide array of Native Americans to life while capturing the splendor of nature and the land. "Poetic and compelling."--"Kirkus Reviews." Full color.
