The First Strawberries - Joseph Bruchac
One day the Creator made man and woman. They married and were happy. But the man came home one day from hunting and found his wife picking flowers instead of having dinner ready. He became angry and said some hurtful things. The wife left and as much as he tried, the husband could not catch her. But the sun saw how sorry he was and agreed to help the husband.This is a cherokee tale about the first strawberries. It, of course, explains the creation of strawberries, but I believe the story goes much deeper than that. It is about making mistakes and being able to forgive. It was a good story that I think teaches a good lesson.
