Description

Written by Arvis Boughman, an enrolled member of the Lumbee of North Carolina and illustrated by Alfreda Beartrack-Algeo, a storyteller, poet, artist and member of the Lower Brule Lakota Nations, Kul Wicasa Oyate, in Lower Brule, South Dakota where she grew up.

In this delightful Lumbee story, clever Rabbit outsmarts a selfish Great Snapping Turtle. When Rabbit discovers many animals could not find water, he sets out to solve the mystery. What he finds is the Great Snapping Turtle blocking the water of the Mother Spring. When the stubborn turtle refuses to move, Rabbit figures out a way to let the water flow. As the water flowed to all creatures, it also created the oceans of Turtle Island.
