Appeared in Publishers Weekly on 2004-05-10:
Fourth in the Grandmother Stories series, which focuses on Cherokee history and legend, Rabbit and the Bears by Deborah Duvall, illus. by Murv Jacob, follows the trickster rabbit Ji-Stu and Yona, a bear, as winter approaches. Yona brings Ji-Stu up into the Smoky Mountains to Lake Ata-Gahi, a sacred and hidden refuge for all animals. Everyone shares food, stories and songs before the bears must prepare for hibernation. Jacob, a descendant of Kentucky Cherokees, creates b&w illustrations that resemble woodcuts and take on a vintage printmaking quality. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Library of Congress Summary
Bored on a fall afternoon, Rabbit accompanies Bear when he sets off for the mountain where all the bears spend the winter in hibernation.
Main Description
Ji-Stu the Rabbit doesn't spend the beautiful autumn days gathering food for the winter like some of the animals. Instead he travels with his friend Yona the Bear to Mulberry Place, the high mountain homeland of the bears. He has heard Yona tell stories of the dancing and celebrations. Let someone else gather food! Ji-Stu will go to the mountains with Yona! On the way to the mountains the two friends encounter a hunter. Soon Ji-Stu witnesses the magic powers of Lake Ata-Gahi, which can heal the wounds of animals but is invisible to humans. As he sings and dances with the bears, Ji-Stu learns the magic of friendship as well as the magic of the lake.
