Description

In spring, the hills and meadows are brightly colored with the reds and oranges of the Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja) a hearty wildflower that enjoys full sun. How this striking wildflower received its name is told in an old Indian legend.

In this story, retold and illustrated by Tomie dePaola, we learn of a boy who grew up to become the painter of the tribe, but although he found a pure white buckskin for a canvas and made paints from the brightest flowers and the reddest berries, he could not capture the sunset.
