Synopsis: Have you ever wanted something real bad but it seemed too complex to try? Did you give up because you had no experience - or there wasn't enough time? Faced with a challenge to make a traditional turkey feather cape where this knowledge had been long forgotten, the author - a Chickasaw elder - undertakes an ardous project and succeeds. So that the cultural knowledge will be preserved, this "how-to" book is the result. The author encourages a "time-out" from a hurried lifestyle to undertake a lengthy project, one that encourages visualization and prizes inspiration. To overcome the lack of experience, the author introduces creative thinking concepts. The hidden prize may be to develop ways to work on other complex projects.To give substance to the long forgotten knowledge, the author explores past written history of Colonial Times, back to 1540 when the Chickasaw met De Soto. Going back to the roots of the Chickasaws steeped in the Mississippian Era of 1000- 1550 AD, knowledge is added by what modern archeologists have "dug up" from the past. This is a story, rarely told from the Indian viewpoint, for those who undertake making a turkey feather cape and those who love history.

About the Author: Born of Chickasaw parents, Robert Perry left Ada, Oklahoma to pursue a long chemical engineering career, one that earned eight U. S. Patents. He and his wife Faye retired in his home town, the headquarters of the Chickasaw Nation. He came to write about the 38 Indian tribes of Oklahoma. Robert is a member of the Council of Elders that advises on tribal cultural issues, past board member of the Chickasaw Historical Society, and on the board of the Chickasaw Press. He is a member of the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers. Books by Robert Perry: Life with the Little People (stories) and Uprising: Crumbo and Indian Art (biography for 2009 release).
