Description

˝Yuse, The Bully & the Bear is a wonderful story of a boy who learns how to make his way in the world by using his own unique gifts. For generations, Shoshone children in what is now Wyoming have listened to and learned from Yuse═s story. Now John Washakie has given other children this story gift in a book that shines with Jon Cox═s luminous and sensitive illustrations. All of us _ adults and children alike _ are enriched by this beautiful gift. Its wisdom transcends generations.ţ _ Margaret Coel, author of the Wind River mystery series and of Chief Left Hand

Yuse is the story of a boy who is not the most athletic, biggest, or strongest of his friends. In short, he is a kid like most kids. However, he is surrounded by wise teachers and people who help him overcome his fears and adversaries by using his head. The story crosses ethnic and cultural boundaries and is pertinent to anyone who has ever been the underdog.

Designed as a 3rd grade level reading book, it is also a great read aloud for younger students. Written by John Washakie, the great grandson of Chief Washakie, John learned the traditional stories of his people from his Gramma Josie and other relatives who had the gift of making them come to life.

Illustrated with full color watercolor pictures, the story brings to life the people of the Shoshone Tribe and the places they lived. This is a traditional, Native American story and a vital part of our country═s history. This book is an effort to record and keep for generations to come, these classic stories.

Early literacy is enhanced with the inclusion of a glossary of words in the Shoshone language. Captions to illustrations are in Shoshone.
