The Mighty Hunter

By Berta Hader, Elmer Hader

Little Brave Heart's mother tells him to go to school so he can grow up to be a wise leader, but he goes hunting instead. Each animal in turn tells him that there is a better animal to shoot. The bear chastises him for hunting for “fun,” and chases him to school. The illustrations alternate between black-and-white and desert colors.
