The Land of the Great Turtles

When the Creator gave the Cherokee people a beautiful island with everything they cold ever need, it came with only one rule - to take care of the land and animals living there. But, what happens when the children decide to play instead of taking care of their responsibilities?

The Land of the Great Turtles is a colorful and fun retelling of a well-known Cherokee story, meant to be read aloud - to continue the age-old tradition of sharing between generations.

The Texas Cherokee

In 1819 abd 1820 several hundred Cheorkee - led by Duwali, a chief from Tennessee - settled along the Sabine, Neches, and Angelina rivers in east Texas.
They soon found themselves "caught between two fires": The Cherokee ideal of harmony and the reality of factionalism between white settlers pushing westward and western Indians resisting incursion, and between traditional ways and the practical necessity of accommodating to whites.
