It was a most unlikely success story, the Saints having finished the 1999 season with only three wins in sixteen games. But after three decades of frustration on the part of owners, coaches, players, and fans, the New Orleans Saints, overcoming inexperience and injuries in spectacular fashion, put together an exciting turnaround season in 2000. One thing had become clear: the Saints had come marching in. This volume records, in text and photographs, the special elements that sustained that march. Hardcover.

“Take what you need and leave the rest,” is the refrain of this original trickster tale. In the old days, all of the world’s wealth was kept by the Oyster.

But what happens when Snake takes more than needed and that balance is threatened? Will the Oyster shed his gentle nature or will the treacherous Snake choke on his own greed?
An adaptation of a traditional Choctaw tale told in the rhythmic verse reminiscent of the classic Br’er Rabbit tales, this vivid and clever story comes to life through illustrations and unique storytelling.

Possum is hungry as well, but does not feel like helping Deer—he’s just too lazy!
