Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From an award-winning Native American storyteller comes this captivating re-telling of a Cherokee legend, which explains how strawberries came to be. Long ago, the first man and woman quarrelled. The woman left in anger, but the Sun sent tempting berries to Earth to slow the wife's retreat. Luminous paintings perfectly complement the simple, lyrical text.

Review:

"Vojtech's soft, luminous watercolors conjure up an unspoiled landscape bathed in sunlight — visual reinforcement of the idea that the earth and its wonders are indeed gifts." Publishers Weekly
