Loic Locatelli-Kournwsky was born in Oyonnax in eastern France in 1987. He has published three graphic novels: Canis Majoris, a personal account on the trials and tribulations of suicide; Ni Dieu Ni Maitre (No God No Master); and the very well-received Vaincus Mais Vivants (Conquered but Alive), published by Lombard Editions. This is his first graphic novel to be translated into English. He currently lives and works in Lyon. Sandra Smith is the translator of all twelve novels by Irene Nemirovsky; a new translation of Camus' L'Etranger (The Outsider, Penguin UK); and The Necklace and Other Stories: Maupassant for Modern Times (Liveright). Her translation of Nemirovsky's Suite Francaise won the French-American Foundation and Florence Gould Foundation Translation Prize for Fiction, as well as the PEN Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize. After ten years as a Fellow of Robinson College, Cambridge, Smith now lives in New York.
"A gorgeous and vividly illustrated historical romance about the titular Native American legend." -- Library Journal
