    Book details


Stands-by-Herself lives with her grandmother in a buffalo-hide tipi on the Great Plains. Other children make fun of her because she is always by herself dreaming. One day she finds a strange egg-shaped rock and senses there is something special about it. Taking it home, she cares for it as if it were a child, even though the other children mock her. When a terrible drought threatens to wipe out her people, could Stands-by-Herself's rock hold the key to their survival? The Thunder Egg is the story of a girl's coming of age, when she realizes that life can require us to think of others before ourselves and to follow what our hearts tell us. Featuring an author's note, informative notes on the illustrations, and a bibliography, the book is filled with vibrant images of Plains Indian life in the unspoiled West. Carefully crafted text and paintings bring a true authenticity to the time, place, and people of the story.
