White Cloud's brothers tease him about playing with his lasso all day while they work. The teasing ends when White Cloud lassos a rain cloud and brings rain to their drought stricken village.


White Cloud and His Magic Lasso is a series of four children's picture books which chronicle the life of a Plains Indian who, as a youth, was more interested in playing with a lasso than completing his chores. Other tribal members scold and tease him about his fixation with the lasso--that is until he saves the tribe from drought and other perils with the aid of his lasso. The series is captivating and visually engaging and includes themes of honor, respect, and fair play. Book 1 is 34 pages in length and the series is intended for ages 5-8 years.
