As the people begin to outnumber the animals and then to hunt them for their hides and meat, the days of peaceful coexistence are over.

Wow! The Cherokees had some great ideas about the origins of diseases and medicine! Because the human beings treated the animals so badly, the animals fought back by making the humans sick. I especially like the scary drawing of the copperheads weaving above the heads of the sleeping people. According to the story, this is why we have frightening dreams about snakes to this day. The animals make so many illnesses that the people are struck down. But all is not lost. The plants come to our rescue and create medicines to treat all the sicknesses made by the animals. When the story ends, the reader finds a bonus on the last four pages - beautiful drawings of medicinal plants, complete with their Cherokee and Latin pronunciations and a list of their uses in natural medicine. The illustrations in this book are superb. My personal favorite is a double-page spread of a young man in a canoe. Murv Jacob did his homework. Not only the animals, but every plant in the book is readily recognizable. This is a great read and a great visual experience for kids and adults alike.
