Review of the story:
The collaborative effort of author Kay Thorpe Bannon, illustrator Kristina Rodanas, and storyteller Robert H. Bushyhead, Yonder Mountain is the truly impressive picture book retelling of a Native American folktale. A wise old Cherokee chief must choose a successor to lead him; so he sends three young men out on a journey to a mountaintop. One returns with precious stones that represent wealth; one returns with healing herbs to guard against disease. But the third, who climbs all the way to the top of the mountain, returns with something even more crucial to being a leader. Yonder Mountain is unreservedly recommended as a profound allegorical tale brought vividly to life with sweeping color illustrations.
