Long-Ago Stories of the Eastern Cherokee
By Lloyd Arneach

Tragically, relatively little of this flourishing nation and its rich culture have survived. Its stories, however, live on today. In this priceless and engaging collection, native Cherokee and professional storyteller Lloyd Arneach recounts tales such as how the bear lost his long bushy tail and how the first strawberry came to be. Between these legends are historical accounts of the heartbreaking Trail of Tears and of Sequoyah, the man who created a written Cherokee language. Charmingly written and beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Elizabeth Ellison, this book provides an insightful look into the folklore and lives of the Cherokee past and present.
