- DescriptionStepping Stones to the Sun is told through the eyes of a Native American boy coming of age during the clash of cultures that marked America's western frontier in the late 1800s. Facing the prospect of being sent far away to the white man's school, where he fears he will lose his identity as a Cheyenne, and perhaps his life, Little Beaver overcomes his anger and frustration through a suspenseful encounter with a grizzly bear that changes his destiny. Stepping Stones to the Sun is a charming tale blending Cheyenne legend and a boy's search for his life purpose. Illustrated with delightful art, this book is sure to enchant readers of all ages.
