  • Short Description
Rabbit solves the mystery of why his friends can?t find a drink of water. The answer is not what he expected.
In this delightful Lumbee story, clever Rabbit outsmarts a selfish Great Snapping Turtle. When Rabbit discovers many animals could not find water, he sets out to solve the mystery. What he finds is the Great Snapping Turtle blocking the water of the Mother Spring. When the stubborn turtle refuses to move, Rabbit figures out a way to let the water flow. As the water flowed to all creatures, it also created the oceans of Turtle Island.

Arvis Boughman, an enrolled member of the Lumbee Indian tribe of North Carolina, works with adults and children as an elementary schoolteacher and a speech/language pathologist. He has worked with children from many different Indigenous nations. Arvis currently lives with his family in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.
