Publishers Description

When it was first published, "Crossing Bok Chitto" took readers by surprise. This moving and original story about the intersection of Native and African Americans received starred reviews and many awards, including being named an ALA Notable Children's Book and a Jane Addams Honor Book. Jeanne Rorex Bridges' illustrations mesmerized readers--"Publishers Weekly" noted that her "strong, solid figures gaze squarely out of the frame, beseeching readers to listen, empathize and wonder."

Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle blends songs, flute, and drum to bring the lore of the Choctaw Nation to life in lively historical, personal, and traditional stories.

Artist Jeanne Rorex Bridges traces her heritage back to her Cherokee ancestors.

Crossing Bok Chitto  May 1, 2008
Crossing Bok Chitto by Tim Tingle is about a girl called Martha Tom who crosses a river called Bok Chitto looking for blackberries. The river however is also the boundary for slavery, once a slave crosses the river the river it is free. When she finally finds blackberries she also finds herself lost. Then a slave comes and talks to her. Later he tells his son called Little Mo to take her to the river. Then Martha Tom visited Little Mo and his family every Sunday to go to church with them. All goes well until Little Mo's mother gets sold, so they plan to escape. Everything goes to plan until they reach the river. Little Mo had forgotten the secret way to cross the river. Then Little Mo put his hands in the river, finds the path, and crosses it. After that Little Mo ran into Martha Tom's house begging for help. With that Martha Tom's mother told all the women of the tribe to put on their white ceremony dresses. Then the women acted like spirits and helped the family cross the river into freedom.

No matter how different you are you can still be friends. Little Mo guided Martha Tom to the river. Martha Tom showed Little Mo the secret way to cross the river. The Choctaw helped Little Mo's family cross the river. Even though they had different traditions they were still friends. Martha Tom broke the rule to visit Little Mo. I would recommend this book anyone who enjoys friendship.
