An old woman was cooking, stirring a big pot hanging over an open fire. She was making Kanahena, a cornmeal dish and the oldest old Cherokee food, and it reminded her of a story. It's an old-time story. The animals could talk then, she said to the little girl who had come to see her.

The story she tells is a Cherokee legend about tricky Terrapin, who gets into a great deal of trouble with Bad Wolf and the Other Wolves over a little Kanahena, and must use his wits to save himself.
