Product Description

Late at night around the campfires, Seminole children safely tucked into mosquito nets used to listen to the elders retelling the old stories and legends. Now these priceless legends of mischievous Rabbit, the Corn Lady, the Deer Girl, and all the creatures of the Florida Everglades are written down for the first time for all to enjoy. These rich tales impart valuable lessons about living in harmony with nature and about why the world is the way it is. Readers of all ages will delight in these images of the way of life and beliefs of the Seminoles of Florida, a nation with relatively few members but with a rich and vital heritage. Each story is illustrated with an original painting.
