School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up
At once eerie and compelling, sometimes gruesome and always satisfying, this highly readable collection effectively conveys the connection between the natural world and the world of the spirit common in Native American lore. Drawing on stories from the Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks, and Seminoles, an expert storyteller entrances readers with vivid language that conjures up all manner of supernatural creatures, from shape-shifters and tricksters to talking animals and witches. A brief introduction to each tribe prefaces their stories, providing both a historical and spiritual context for the tales, which are rich in imagery as well as emotion. The authenticity of the storyteller's voice makes this collection distinctive and a wonderful choice for reading aloud or savoring by a campfire.
