Tonight, we’ll read some of the folklore of the Cherokee people from the 1900 book "Myths of the Cherokee" by James Mooney. Mooney was an American ethnographer who lived for several years with the Cherokee. He became a self-taught expert on American tribes by his own studies and his careful observation during long residences with different groups.
