5.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure into Cherokee folkfore with fabulous art December 29, 1998
By A Customer
I grew up on these stories (Aunt Mary is my great aunt) and am raising my son on them from this book. Each story takes the reader/listener back into a time when animals spoke, witches lurked, and the earth was truly alive with magic. The art adds food for the imagination as Aunt Mary tells you stories of the witch--Spearfinger, how the Smokies were created and many more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book of local stories. July 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
This is a very good collection of stories as told to the author during her growing up years. It is written in the local vernacular and is very entertaining. I found it useful to read some of the same stories I have heard from other sources with slight variations demonstrating local flavor.
I consider this book a must read for anyone studying Native American lore.
