Book Review (Part 2): Greet the Dawn:The Lakota Way – by S.D.Nelson

Today I am doing something a little different. I’m posting a second part to one of my reviews – Greet the Dawn: The Lakota Way by S. D. Nelson. Please be sure to refer to part one of my review HERE to gain a more complete appreciation of this book.

Greet the Dawn the Lakota WayThe reason I am doing part two is because I want you to get a taste of some of the astounding illustrations created by Mr. Nelson, the author of the book. After sending a request to the Marketing Director of South Dakota Historical Society Press  – where this wonderful picture book was published – I received gracious permission and the illustrations I selected to post on my blog. (Thank you, Martyn Beeny!) Please visit their website HERE.

All the pages in Greet The Dawn: The Lakota Way are fully illustrated, edge to edge, in gorgeous colour.

Here are three for you to admire and … ENJOY!

You can find Greet the Dawn: The Lakota Way listed on my BUY THE BOOK! page.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Oh, splendid! I do love the meadowlark – one of my favorite birds, though I rarely see one down here. I think the pastels are interesting – I’m so used to “southwestern” colors they don’t seem quite as “Native American”, but when you look closer at the ilustrations, the shapes and symbols are beautifully done, and full of life.

    Great addition to your review!
