American Indian peoples from across the country recite poems and songs of thanks to acknowledge their gratitude for creation and the bounty of the natural world. Abenaki storyteller and writer Joseph Bruchac retells some of these thanksgiving poems in a collection illustrated with Cherokee painter Murv Jacob's singular full-color art which reflects the heritage of the people from which each poem or song has come. Reader-friendly notes at the end of the text provide additional information on the importance of each poem's subject. (Ages 7-11)
