Children’s author, Paul Goble, died earlier this month at age 83. Well known for his 1979 Caldecott winning title, “The Girl Who Loved Wild Horse,” Goble was closely connected to the west and Native American life. Although British born, Goble had an early love for Native American culture when his mother read him tales of tribes and history. He illustrated and retold Native American tales as well as non-fiction titles of historical events such as Custer’s battle. According to the Publisher’s Weekly obituary, Goble became an artist-in-residence at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial and an adopted member of the Yakima and Sioux tribes. A biography of Paul Goble is expected out this year.
