When I was a little boy, my mother made me a small tipi and painted it with Native American symbols. It excited my interest, and made me want to know more. This book is the kind of book I began looking for, but never found. So I have made it for you. These are the opening words to world-renowned artist, Paul Goble's latest work, Tipi: Home of the Nomadic Buffalo Hunters. Through his award-winning art and the stories and tales of the old-timers, Goble examines the construction and art of the tipi, which was more than a simple dwelling for the Plains Indians, but rather an expression of their belief in the spirituality of the world around them.
