Rabbit and the Bears


Deborah L. Duvall
Illustrated by Murv Jacob

Ji-Stu the Rabbit doesn't spend the beautiful autumn days gathering food for the winter like some of the animals. Instead he travels with his friend Yona the Bear to Mulberry Place, the high mountain homeland of the bears. He has heard Yona tell stories of the dancing and celebrations. Let someone else gather food! Ji-Stu will go to the mountains with Yona!

On the way to the mountains the two friends encounter a hunter. Soon Ji-Stu witnesses the magic powers of Lake Ata-Gahi, which can heal the wounds of animals but is invisible to humans. As he sings and dances with the bears, Ji-Stu learns the magic of friendship as well as the magic of the lake.
