Description

From an award-winning Native American storyteller comes this captivating re-telling of a Cherokee legend, which explains how strawberries came to be. Long ago, the first man and woman quarrelled. The woman left in anger, but the Sun sent tempting berries to Earth to slow the wife?s retreat. Luminous paintings perfectly complement the simple, lyrical text. Complete harmony of text and pictures: altogether lovely. -- Kirkus Reviews, pointer review. Joseph Bruchac is an award-winning storyteller whose books for children include Eagle Song, Children of the Longhouse, and Arrow to the Sun.
