Book Review - Te Ata: Chickasaw Storyteller, American Treasure

It is hard to describe how much I loved this book. I must admit, it was Te Ata's image on the front cover that originally caught my eye in a used book store. But once I started the book, every time I sat down to read it I felt like I was listening to one of my Grandma Rosie's stories about 'the old days'. Te Ata's elegance, grace, talent, and perseverance are truly inspiring and Richard Green's book captures it all very well.

Sean, I was amazed and happy to find and read your review. I worked several years on that book and am glad it's still circulating. Furthermore, the tribe I work for, the Chickasaw Nation, owns Chickasaw Press which has just acquired the rights to the book from OU Press and that means it will be marketed more aggressively in the future. Thanks very much for taking the time to read the book and I am so glad you enjoyed it.
