Brother Eagle, Sister Sky: A message from Chief Seattle
Publisher: Puffin Books
This book uses illustrations to explore a much-adapted speech made by a Native American Chief over 150 years ago. This profound message about man’s destruction of nature and native cultures across the globe is sadly, always relevant.
Jeffers joins small sections of the text with large, expansive illustrations depicting the landscape of North America and the impact of colonisation. She uses muted tones of green, brown and yellow to create a sober and dream-like view of the past. A great starting point for exploring ideas of spirituality and consequence with young children.
