Jan. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- This classic Native American story about courage is told by Chaske, a grandfather trying to keep his people’s culture alive. In Mahpiya’s Gift, he retells an old tale to his grandchildren.

Over 100 years ago, a magnificent gift was given to a Native American tribe, who had given up all hope when their village is starving. The tribe camped out too long in Nebraska Territory, and is now paying the price. A mother sends her nine-year-old son, Mahpiya, to
bring back food so the village can eat.

After nearly drowning, the boy returns triumphant with Mahpiya’s Gift. This inspiring tale shows that it doesn’t take the biggest or strongest among us to succeed, only the bravest.

MAHPIYA’S GIFT (ISBN: 978-1-60911-583-8) will be available on Dec. 1, 2010, for $12 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website: or at or Wholesalers please email BookOrder@AEG-Online-
