Overview

The Boy Who Danced With Rabbits by J. R. Collins

Indians and Settlers live together

The Collins family are early settlers to their Appalachian home at the base of Ben's Knob Mountain in the valley Indians call Cho-E-Sto-E, a Cherokee word describing the valley as 'the rabbit place'. Jeb and his full-blood Cherokee friend, Wolf, grow to manhood in this valley and the tales they spawn become legend. It is a time of self-preservation and living off the land, a time when Indians and settlers enjoy peace and a way of life which is considered proper. A time when God is supreme and folks depend on Him to aid in their ability to produce what is needed to survive. Hunting produces meat, farming produces crops, and the mountains hold favor for a boy who will see a time in history live its life--a time when "The Trail" will bring tears from the Cherokee as they were forced to leave their beloved mountains, and the valley where the rabbits danced.

About the Author

J. R. Collins was raised in the valley he so passionately writes about. An ancestor of the first pilgrims to the area, he proudly claims heritage and roots through the people of the Appalachian Mountains that settled in the Choestoe Valley sometime in the latter part of the 1700’s. Born in 1962, he grew up hunting and running the ridges of Choestoe.
As of 2013, Collins has been Director of Advertising for The North Georgia News, after having worked as editor for sports stories, special events and is in the process of publishing Professional Golf Tips: A Pocket Lesson Book for Golfers - Tips from the Range - Ten Things All Golfers Must Know. He is a graduate of Young Harris College. Collins is currently working on the sequel, Living in the Land Where Rabbits Dance.

Having lived most of my life in Georgia, The Boy Who Danced with Rabbits became near and dear to my heart. Knowing what was done to the Native Americans, it was refreshing to read of friendship, co-dependence, and loyalty between the white settlers in the North Georgia Mountains and the Cherokee. Collins’ nailed the mountain dialect and the ways of the people. His description of the Cherokee way of life and need for peace made me want to live in that era. Fantastic book! Can’t wait for the sequel! — CJ Loiacono
