Description
"On the Medicine Painter's magic cloth you would live forever", Spotted Deer tells his grandfather, Moose Horn. It is the day George Catlin, the famous painter of American Indians, comes to visit their village. Fearing the artist may take away his spirit, Moose Horn refuses to have his portrait made. But Catlin and the gift of a vision bring Moose Horn to a surprising decision. Full color.
