Crossing BOK Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship & Freedom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it was first published, Crossing Bok Chitto took readers by surprise. This moving and original story about the intersection of Native and African Americans received starred reviews and many awards, including being named an ALA Notable Children’s Book and a Jane Addams Honor Book. Jeanne Rorex Bridges’ illustrations mesmerized readers—Publishers Weekly noted that her “strong, solid figures gaze squarely out of the frame, beseeching readers to listen, empathize and wonder.”

Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle blends songs, flute, and drum to bring the lore of the Choctaw Nation to life in lively historical, personal, and traditional stories.

Artist Jeanne Rorex Bridges traces her heritage back to her Cherokee ancestors.

Synopsis:

Seven slaves cross the big river to freedom, led by a Choctaw angel walking on water!
