First Painter
by Kathryn Lasky & Rocco Baviera

A young girl enters a cave to fulfill her new role as the prehistoric clan's Dream Catcher. At first she is unsure what to do, but soon she begins painting the animals see 'sees' in the stone. If she succeeds, maybe the drought will end. School Library Journal said this "very special book" is "so evocative that readers will be holding their breath by the end."
