The Dream Catcher


Author: Anthony James – Music: Tim Spencer


The Plains Indians of North America


A story about the Native American Indians as an ancient Indian brave, Old Grey Cloud, recounts the story of a time before the white man, when a young Lakota girl, Spring Rain, tries unsuccessfully to persuade the young braves that courage is something greater than the acquisition of notches on a coup stick. It is a fictional story accurately based on the historical facts of the Native American Indians.

We did “Dream Catchers” last year and thought it was fantastic.
We used the backing tape and were thrilled with it.
