The Otter, the Spotted Frog & the Great Flood : A Creek Indian Story Hardback
Illustrated by Ramon Shiloh
When Spotted Frog tells of a great flood that is about to destroy their homes, all of the animals ignore his warnings, except Listener the Otter.
Ridiculed by the other animals, Listener heeds Spotted Frog's predictions and begins to build a raft to try and survive the impending disaster.
But will his efforts be enough? This charming children's book warns us to listen to the wisdom of nature and the environment.
Based on a traditional story from the Creek Indians of northern Florida and Georgia, this book is retold by award-winning author and storyteller Gerald Hausman, and is brought to life by the powerful images of Ramon Shiloh.
This universal tale is imbued with Native American wisdom that is even more prescient now, with the conditions of global warming that threaten our world.
