Read Little Firefly: An Algonuian Legend 107 Reminiscent of the Cinderella story this is the enchanting tale of a shy maiden who wins the heart of a great warrior despite her cruel and mocking older sister. Little Firefly is forced to do all the work in her wigwam in this retelling of an Algonuian tale as her father is often away hunting and her two older sisters who cruelly nickname her Little Burnt One refuse to do any cooking or cleaning Scarred as a result of her time in front of the fire Little Firefly has no hopes unlike her sisters of winning the great warrior The Invisible One who lives together with his sister across the lake from their village as a husband But when she rows across to offer herself as a servant having grown tired of her mistreatment at home and is able to see The Invisible One with his rainbow bowstring and his hunting strap made from the Milky Way it turns out she is the one destined to be his wifeThis Algonuian variant of the widespread Cinderella story the persecuted heroine tale type in the Aarne Thompson folklore classification system had also been retold by Rafe Martin as The Rough Face Girl and by Robert D San Souci as Sootface I cannot compare it to these other retellings as I have not yet read them but I can say that this version Little Firefly irritated me greatly The fourth entry in the Native American Legends series that I have read by Terri Cohlene it is the first to which I have given a one star rating although my estimation of the series as a whole has declined with each book read I gave three stars to the first one I read Clamshell Boy A Makah Legend and two stars each to Turuoise Boy A Navajo Legend and Dancing Drum A Cherokee Legend It s not simply that as with her previous titles Cohlene neglected to provide any source material for this story although that certainly irritates me and in conjunction with other critiues of some of the books in this series makes me wonder about issues of authenticity This title also contained some grossly misleading information in the factual afterword about the Algonuian people Bad enough that all of the Irouois nations were included in a confusing way in Cohlene s map of the Algonuian tribes Um hello Linguistically the Irouois nations are related to the Cherokee who constitute the southern branch of the Irouoian language family historically they were enemies of the Algonuian peoples but Cohlene also includes a reference to the Battle of Wounded Knee in her timelineNo Terri Cohlene the horrific massacre that occurred at Wounded Knee was not a battle and any slack I was going to cut you because the aforementioned map may not have been deliberately confusing there is a subtle distinction made between the Algonuian and Irouoian names one being in bold and slightly larger a distinction that will probably fly over most young readers heads went right out the door when I saw that Just no No no no No this book is NOT recommended
