My picture book, Spearfinger, traditionally takes place in the Snowbird Mountains/Nantahala River valley of North Carolina, but I like to think Spearfinger could have haunted many places where the Cherokees lived, even in Kentucky where I live. Kentucky means “meadowlands” in Cherokee. Whiteside Mountain, in the Snowbirds, is her rumored home.

Snake Doctors/The Dog That Saved Humanity

By Joyce Rheal and Brian Wilkes. Narrated by Kim Crow

An anthology of two traditional morality tales, including exposure to Cherokee language.

“The Snake Doctors”: When you see dragonflies gather, there may be snakes nearby – watch out! Everyone has their own talents, their own “medicine”. Our medicines may change over our lives. Once you give up some part of you, even if you didn’t mean to, you may not be able to get it back. “The Snake Doctors” teaches us not to try to be something we’re not, especially to impress somebody else. It teaches us that we can recover from our own problems by finding somebody else who needs our help. And remember – if you do something on a dare, you may be sorry!

“The Dog Who Saved Humanity”: Why do dogs love us so much, and why are they willing to risk their lives to rescue us? Joyce Rheal and Brian Wilkes retell the ancient story of the dog who warned humans of the Great Flood that was on the way. Native American teaching stories are often linked to specific locations, and this one is linked to a specific mountain in Tennessee, where the Ark came to rest, and where the survivors erected a 16-foot-tall stone dog to remind them of the event. This book examines the deep connection between Southeastern Nations and their beloved dogs. A fun audiobook you’ll share with your children and grandchildren over and over again!  [print version is also available]
