A beautiful telling of the a turtles back as a moon calendar. Tribes may differ in the number of moons followed as the author notes at the end but this book covers 13 from several of North American native people. Intimate connections created with the seasons, animals and natural world.

Gorgeous illustrations and a taste of many indigenous tribes bring ancient wisdom to little people today. An excellent resource for native history and seasonal connections. A demonstration of deep reverence and love of the earth.
