Read full description of the books Qu'Appelle:For generations, the Native people of the Northern Plains have told the legend of Qu'Appelle. In this famous love story, a young brave must leave his betrothed to lead a war party against the Blackfoot. Heartbroken by his absence, she falls sick, calls out for her love, and dies. Cree elders say that if you go out onto the prairies and listen, you can still hear the brave searching for his lost love, calling out "Qu'Appelle" -- who is calling?
