In Memory: Paul Goble

Compiled by Gayleen Rabakukk
Award-winning Author Paul Goble, Dead at 83 (Rapid City Journal, Jan. 5, 2017). 

Paul Goble’s work – writing, illustrating, or both – were included in more than 40 books.

In 1979, he won the Caldecott Medal for The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses (Simon & Schuster, 1978).

Peek: “'The world of children’s literature is poorer for his loss, and the world in general, because he was such a kind person who dedicated his life to his passions — Native American people and art. His life was a marriage of those two passions,'” Gregory Bryan, a professor of children’s literature at the University of Manitoba."

Bryan’s biography, Paul Goble, Storyteller, released earlier this month from the South Dakota Historical Society Press.

This video interview withTeresa Fugate, director of the Prairie Edge Fine Art’s Gallery, includes many of Goble's illustrations.

What a loss. I have read a number of his books to my child, and been delighted by their artistry.
