Barbara R. Duncan is education director at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian in Cherokee, North Carolina. She collected and edited the original Living Stories of the Cherokee and co-authored The Cherokee Heritage Trails Guidebook (both from the University of North Carolina Press).


The Origin of the Milky Way can be enjoyed as a delightful collection of tales to instruct children, but it is really much more than that. It contains a living history of a proud nation of very gifted people.--The Midwest Book Review
Aimed at middle school and junior high school students, this collection of Cherokee stories is of interest to all levels.--KLIATT
All of the stories--which range from very funny to very sad to very scary--teach connection to land, culture, and community. . . . Highly recommended.--Oyate
As a Cherokee scholar, citizen, and mother, I appreciate the contribution Duncan makes to Cherokee children's literature. . . . Teachers, scholars, and parents should welcome this work and its contribution to Cherokee scholarship.--Journal of Appalachian Studies
Featured in Carolina Country's Tar Heel Lessons, a guide for North Carolina teachers and students
The living stories--because they're still being told, they remain alive--teach in a traditional way what's important in Cherokee culture. . . . Highly recommended.--Multicultural Review
The stories are well chosen, and they are beautifully presented. . . . A model for bringing high quality folklore research to young readers.--Journal of Folklore Research
This is a book for children who are 10 years and older, but any adult who wants to know more about the Cherokees would enjoy its stories and the informational introductions to the sections.--Fayetteville Observer
