Apples From Heaven: Multicultural Folk Tales About Stories and Storytellers

Story Summary

The storytelling stone told the entire Seneca village stories of the world's beginning, of animals who could talk and of how the world came to be and just before falling silent forever it told them to tell these stories to their children and to their children's children. This is a lovely and gentle parable about the importance of stories in our lives.
