In Mary Quequesah's Love Story, a tale from the buffalo-hunting era of the nineteenth century, Mary Quequesah confronts the difficulties of love. After Mary's husband leaves her, a wise old woman dreams of her sorrow and tells her how to win him back. Elegant woodcuts by noted Native American artist Dwight Billedeaux accompany this complex story, which, while written at a fifth-grade reading level, will speak to readers of all ages.
