J.R. Collins – The Boy Who Danced with Rabbits
A peace was felt for many years in the Southern Appalachian Mountains following the American Revolution and the creation of America; a time when settlers and native Cherokee lived somewhat of a peaceful and enjoyable life amongst one another. Families married into families; a community of sorts was building throughout the mountains of what is now North Georgia. Friendships and dependencies were formed on one another to maintain a civilized society. The Creek moved on and the Indian wars ceased. The native Cherokee became the principal nation and desired peace. It was a time when boys, both immigrant and native, could be boys, exploring the adventures the mountains had for them. This is the story of Jeb Collins of the Choestoe Valley, and Wolf, a native Cherokee Indian of purebred descent who also called the valley home, and their adventures on the ridges, hollers, and streams of a land time was holding still.
