About The Book

Beyond the Ridge shows “Goble at his best” (SLJ) in this beautiful, comforting, and simple book to help children of all ages process and grieve the loss of a loved one.

Paul Goble’s stunning picture book brings a piece of Plains Indian tradition to life in a way that is certain to comfort children who have experienced loss and the heartbreak it brings.

Following the spirt journey of an elder woman after she’s passed, Beyond the Ridge will help young readers understand the journey of life through the eyes of a daughter who hears the call of her mother.

About The Author

Paul Goble has received wide acclaim for his magnificent books, including Buffalo Woman, Dream Wolf, Her Seven Brothers, and the winner of the 1979 Caldecott Medal, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. Commenting on his work in Beyond the Ridge, Horn Book Magazine said, "striking elements synthesize the graphics with the narrative and spiritual aspects of the text." The New York Times Book Review noted that his technique is "a marriage of authentic design and contemporary artistry, and it succeeds beautifully." Paul Goble's most recent book for Bradbury Press, I Sing for the Animals, was called "a lovely, small book that movingly conveys profound belief in the goodness of creation" by Kirkus Reviews, and School Library Journal said it "fits as easily in the hand as Goble's meditations about the natural world do in the heart."
