Award-winning
Author Paul Goble, Dead at 83
(Rapid City Journal, Jan. 5, 2017). 
Paul Goble’s work – writing, illustrating, or both – were included in more than 40 books.

In 1979, he won the Caldecott Medal for The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses (Simon & Schuster, 1978).

Peek: “’The
world of children’s literature is poorer for his loss, and the world in
general, because he was such a kind person who dedicated his life to his
passions — Native American people and art. His life was a marriage of
those two passions,’” Gregory Bryan, a professor of children’s literature at the
University of Manitoba.”

Bryan’s biography, Paul Goble,
Storyteller
, released earlier this month from the South
Dakota Historical Society Press.

This video interview withTeresa Fugate, director of the Prairie Edge Fine Art’s Gallery, includes many of Goble’s illustrations.
