In this sixth volume of the Grandmother Stories, Murv Jacob and Deborah Duvall blend two ancient Cherokee tales into an adventure story. Ji-Stu, the Cherokee trickster Rabbit, sets out to prove that he can magically be transformed into a great singer whose voice will rival that of Redbird. To gain such fame, Ji-Stu must travel far from home to a strange land and into a dark forest, where shadows prevail and danger lurks behind every tree.
“The Grandmother Stories are eloquent, beautifully illustrated tales that capture the imagination of Native America. Deborah L. Duvall and Murv Jacob have done a brilliant job of revisiting the mythic world of Rabbit, Bear, and Otter and introducing them to a contemporary audience. These characters are timeless, as are their stories, and readers of all ages will delight in their antics and unique insights.”–Teresa Miller, director, Center for Poets and Writers, Tulsa, Oklahoma
