As a child at her native Santa Clara Pueblo, near Santa Fe, New Mexico, Pablita Velarde heard the legends of her people told by her grandfather and great-grandfather. Now recognized as one of the greatest American Indian woman artists, she has selected six of the most memorable of these tribal stories for her book Old Father the Story Teller. These legends are simply written, much as Pablita related them to her own children when they were young. She has illustrated each story with the natural earthtone paintings that have gained her national and international renown. Her illustrated legends reveal the artist at her best, in a book that will delight old and young alike.

Condition: First Edition, very good condition with presentation notation on first page and dedication to The Spauldings, signed by Pablita. (Note: The Spauldings were an old time New York State family involved in politics and banking in Buffalo.)
