KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW!
"A heartwarming tale of kinship and community."
No matter how small or insignificant you think you are; you can accomplish great things.
The First Fire, A Cherokee Story happens in a time when animals could do many of the things that people do: The Creator gave the animals the world to live on, but they were without a source for heat at night. Great Thunder and his sons saw the plight of the animals —- so he sent lightning down to strike a tree. The tree burst into flames; but the tree was on an island. Many animals tried to bring the fire over the water to the shore–- but they were all unsuccessful. One small creature, the Water Spider then volunteered. Curious, the animals said to her “We know you could get there safely, but how would you bring the fire back without getting burned?”
Water Spider was successful and to this day, the water spider is revered in Cherokee culture.
