Paul Goble was born and educated in England but has made South Dakota his home since 1977. He has a great love for the Native American tribes of the Plains and has written and illustrated many children’s books about Native American folk stories and traditions. In 1979, he won the Caldecott Award for his book, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses.
The South Dakota Art Museum at the campus of the South Dakota State University in Brookings is the home of the entire collection of Paul Goble’s art work, which he donated to the museum. Visit the museum and have a look at the work of this writer and artist who still lives in his adopted state of South Dakota.
The South Dakota Art Museum is the second stop on our South Dakota Trail!
