Reading this book is almost as good as sitting by the campfire hearing Seminole legends told by Betty Mae Jumper.  Mrs. Jumper was a legend in her own right as a Chairwoman of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, winner of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native American Journalists Association, nurse, storyteller- a woman who had a long list of firsts to her name. Lovingly illustrated by Guy LaBree known as the Barefoot Artist of the Seminoles. The priceless tales of mischievous Rabbit, the Corn Lady, the Deer Girl, and the creatures of the Everglades are all written down and collected here for readers of all ages. This is a portrait of the beliefs and lifeways of the Seminoles of Florida as well as a delightful read for anyone interested in the first peoples of Florida.
