About The Book
How did the Milky Way come to be? This traditional Cherokee legend tells of the time when the world was new and there were not many stars in the sky. In those days there lived an elderly couple who discovered one morning that a thief was stealing their cornmeal. And the culprit was no ordinary thief, but a giant spirit dog!
It took the courage of the couple’s young grandson, the wisdom of the people’s Beloved Woman, and the help of their entire village to drive the spirit dog into the night sky. And ever after the great band of stars formed in its wake has reminded us of the people’s brave deed.
A lyrical text by two renowned Native American storytellers and exquisite paintings by Cherokee-Creek artist Virginia A. Stroud illuminate this lovely story’s timeless message: that great things can be accomplished when a community works together.
