In the late 1700s a little red fox and the inhabitants of a small Muscogee Creek village share a pleasant mountain valley along the Flint River in west central Georgia. The story of Strong Fox is reminiscent of oral tradition stories told to Creek Indian children long ago. Such stories served to entertain while also teaching valuable lessons learned by observing and respecting the ways of animals. Fox has learned to survive by using his wits, and while hiding just outside the village awaiting opportunities to steal an easy meal, he has also learned something from observing people. Fox’s surprising knowledge enables him to have a profound effect on one young boy and through him the entire village. As in the tradition of our ancestors, Strong Fox serves to entertain while inspiring children to face difficulties in their lives by focusing on their strengths, rather than their weaknesses.
