Excerpt:

Rabbit, whose name is Ji-Stu, awoke one morning to the warm, summer sun of the Smokey Mountains, shining through his front door and onto his face.

He stepped outside his house into the broom grass meadow and looked at the sky. There was nothing but blue as far as he could see. “Today is a good day to travel,” Ji-Stu said to himself …

— Synopsis —

Ji-Stu wakes early one morning and decides to visit his old friend Otter, who lives up the river. Along the way, he sees a giant wood duck sitting on the water, surrounded by hundreds of smaller ducks.

Ji-Stu hurries to find Otter, and when they return they find plenty of ducks, but their leader is nowhere in sight. Otter, who did not believe Ji-Stu's story in the first place, slips into the river and immediately catches a wood duck, his favorite feast.

Not to be outdown, Ji-Stu has a plan. "If Otter can catch a wood duck, then I can too. But I will catch a bigger duck!"

So begins Ji-Stu's wildest adventure yet, as he takes on the mighty Cheif of All the Wood Ducks, and this time he will need all his skills to escape!
