Thirteen Moons on Turtle's Back: A Native American Year of Moons
In many Native American cultures it is believed that the thirteen scales on Turtle's shell stand for the thirteen cycles of the moon, each with its own name and a story that relates to the changing seasons. Storyteller and American Book Award recipient Joseph Bruchac and poet Jonathan London collaborate to reveal the beauty of the natural world around us, while Thomas Locker's spectacular oil paintings honor both Native American legends and the varied American landscape.
