Story by Deborah L. Duvall
Drawings by Murv Jacob

Publisher: University of New Mexico Press 2005


Excerpt:

Rabbit, whose Cherokee name is Ji-Stu, grinned and said goodbye to his friends at the dance grounds.

Ji-Stu had been the favorite song leader that night, and he was feeling expecially proud of himself. Across the fire, he caught sight of a young wolf named Wa-ya preparing to leave for home.

"Wa-ya!" Ji-Stu called. "I am too happy to sleep. Come and walk with me to my house, and I will cook you an early breakfast."

Wa-ya hurried to the rabbit's side. Dancing always made him hungry, and Ji-Stu could cook almost as well as he could lead the dancers. Together they made their way toward Ji-Stu's house in the broom grass meadow.

Synopsis

In this sixth volume of the Grandmother Stories, Murv Jacob and Deborah Duvall blend two ancient Cherokee tales into an adventure story. Duvall combined elements of How Redbird Got His Color and How Rabbit Got Away from the Wolves along with her own embellishments to create a lively and timeless story.

Ji-Stu, the Cherokee trickster rabbit, sets out to prove that he can magically be transformed into a great singer whose voice will rival that of Redbird. To gain such fame, Ji-Stu must travel far from home to a strange land, and into a dark forest, where shadows prevail and danger lurks behind every tree.

Along the way Ji-Stu encounters many hazzards and setbacks. In order to escape becoming wolf pack's dinner, Ji-Stu must use his best tricks.
