Runs with the Stars
Darcy Whitecrow & Heather M. O'Connor Illustrated by: Lenny Lishchenko
A moving picture book about the Ojibwe Horse, the only Indigenous-bred horse in Canada.
“Elders say they were always here. The horses were small, but strong.”
As they await the birth of a new foal, a man teaches his grandchild about the Ojibwe Horses that used to roam the forests of northwestern Ontario. The horses once ran wild and free, but when Grandfather was a boy, they almost disappeared. Now he is the caretaker of his own small herd, keeping the breed alive for future generations and teaching his grandchild about the loving bond between human and animals.
