A man and woman fall in love during the hoop dance of their tribe. As the woman works in the mountains, and the man works at the stream, he told her he would play his flute for her every day. Whenever she heard him play, she sent a leaf down stream to let him know she liked his music. One day, it was his time to go hunting and he didn't get a chance to tell the woman he loved that he would be leaving for a few days. When she stopped hearing his music, she began worried he did not like her any more, and fell into an illness. Later on, she died, and when he returned, the man was searching for the woman he loved, only to find out she passed away. ( )

The Flute Player: An Apache Folktale is a book that contains an imaginative story and beautiful illustrations. The main idea of the folktale and book is that, when one hears the sound of the wind blowing through the leaves, he or she is actually listening to an Apache boy playing the flute for his deceased love. This book focuses on themes of emotion, though they are presented in a simple manner that would most likely be accessible to a younger crowd. The main idea presented in this book is a wonderful one and suggests to the reader an imaginative and alternative interpretation of an every day natural occurrence. The illustrations stand out as vivid and emotionally charged ( )
