(Revised Second Edition!) Here is a world created by Crawfish at the command of the Creator. Here is that sweet country of the People of the Many Waters, the Chitimacha, in southern Louisiana. Between the gunwales of a small wooden boat a boy learns the things that define a life, but sets out on a voyage of discovery in disdain for that watery world.
It is a story of ghosts and fly fishing; Native American beliefs and monsters, and learning that life and time truly are circles, and all things come back to where they were before.
The Louisiana Public Broadcasting documentary "Native Waters: A Chitimacha Recollection" was based on this book and its sequel, "The Great Sadness: Indigenous Angling and the Loss of Home." The show is now playing nationwide on public television stations everywhere, was nominated for an Emmy Award and honored with a Bronze Telly Award.

From the Author:

This is the revised second edition of the original 2005 memoir. It traces the life of a 'Breed Native American of the Chitimacha Tribe, son of the last traditional chief.
The second autobiography of Roger Stouff, "The Great Sadness," is also available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle.

From the Back Cover:

Sometimes it doesn't matter if you believe in something or not, if something believes in you...

It is a story of Native American legacy, Acadian heritage, of wooden boats and fly-fishing; there are ghosts here, thousands of years old, ancient spirits and ancestral prophecies.

It is a story as told by water. Water that has flowed through the veins of ancestors for thousands of years. Water that flows into eternity.
