Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle tells stories that range from legends of the early Choctaw to the horrors of the Trail of Tears and more recent tales involving his own family. His is a storyteller’s presentation, with exaggerated voice changes and intense verbal emphasis. While the presentation is much like that used in telling stories to children, these stories are for adults and teens who can understand the horror of a mother carrying her dead baby westward or that of a family massacred because racist white settlers didn’t want Indians in their community. Listeners accustomed to book narrations by professional actors will find this collection radically different. D.T.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
