Summary
Marking things as his territory by writing his name on everything he sees, Wild Yusi, known as Yudonsi, feels the wrath of nature when he declares that the canyon belongs to him.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Wild Yusi, thoughtless Yusi, crazy Yusi thinks the village--and the canyon itself-- is his, scrawling his mark everywhere; on desks at school, buildings, and even trees. "Yudonsi," you-don't-see, the villagers begin calling him. Yudonsi's arrogance knows no bounds until the day he climbs the canyon wall to paint his mark where all must see it, and winds up facing the anger of the canyon and sky, and the threat it poses to the entire village.

With rich, spacious oil paintings that bring the grandeur of the American Southwest to life, Riptide and Akiak creator Robert J. Blake has crafted a moving story about the powerful spirit of a Native American boy, and the equally powerful spirit of his people.

About: Yusi wants people to notice that he is different, so he puts his 'tag' on desks, walls, and even trees, alienating everyone in his village
