Excerpt:

Rabbit, whose Cherokee name is Ji-Stu ... left his house in the broom grass meadow before the morning light and scampered down the forest path. The other animals elected Ji-Stu as "the Messenger" because he could travel faster than most anyone. As he followed the path to the river, he came to the home of Otter, who lived in a burrow hidden beneath the hollow of a huge oak tree. He called Ji-Stu over to show off the morning's catch of fish.

"Oh, Ji-Stu," Otter said as Ji-Stu turned to go, "today is a good day for planting. Take that message to Sa-lo-li the Squirrel and I will cook lunch for you tomorrow."

Synopsis

Ji-Stu the Rabbit finds himself in trouble again, when he gets a chance to help Sa-lo-li the Squirrel plant the seeds for the hardwood forest. But something else is in the forest; a mythical creature who gives Ji-Stu the Rabbit the surprise of his life!

The first storybook in our new series, The Cherokee World series, "Rabbit Plants the Forest" is an exciting adventure that takes the reader step by step through the amazing true story of how squirrels keep our hardwood forests alive.

These new stories are original tales that feature many of the same Cherokee forest characters who appear in the Grandmother Stories.
