Yakari gets to know the ways of the lord of the plains: the buffalo.

After a hunt that brought the tribe much needed supplies, Yakari is visited in his dreams by the buffalo, killed the day of his birth, whose pelt still serves as his blanket. Intrigued, the young Sioux and Little Thunder go see the great herd. From encounter to encounter, and by helping a young mother and her newborn calf against a particularly nasty wolf, Yakari learns to know those majestic animals so important to his own people’s survival ...

Derib and Job have been writing Yakari stories for over 30 years and have both received lifetime achievement awards for their outstanding work. At the comics festival at Angoulême in 2006, Yakari won the 'youth prize 7-8 years'.

'A must-have for parents who want to introduce their children to graphic novels - as well as for anyone who appreciates great storytelling' [Penny Kenny, Comicsbulletin.com]

Derib and Job have been writing Yakari stories for over 30 years and have both received lifetime achievement awards for their outstanding work. At the comics festival at Angoulême in 2006, Yakari won the 'prix jeunesse 7-8 ans' or 'youth prize 7-8 years'.

Yakari is a little Indian, courageous and generous, whose happy life all children would like to share. Astride Little Thunder, his faithful mustang, Yakari gallops across the Great Prairie, where people and animals live in harmony and migrate according to the seasons. Endowed with the wonderful ability to talk with all the animals, Yakari comes to know their way of life and their environment. Through his encounters and discoveries, Yakari passes on to the young readers of his fascinating adventures a sense of respect, tolerance, justice, and solidarity. With humour and kindness, Yakari also shows how to take advantage of the lessons of life revealed by Mother Nature ...
