The term Five Civilized Tribes is the name commonly given to the five major tribes of the southeastern part of the United States: the Cherokees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks, and Seminoles. These tribes came into contact with Europeans early in American history and adapted quickly to new conditions. In the Native American tradition, there is a strong connection between the spirit world and the natural world. What happens in one has a definite impact on the other. In this collection, Native American storyteller Tim Tingle draws from the rich heritage of the Five Civilized Tribes, and brings tales from the spirit world into our world.Tingle, Tim is the author of 'Spirits Dark And Light Supernatural Tales from the Five Civilized Tribes', published 2006 under ISBN 9780874837780 and ISBN 0874837782.
