ENGLEWOOD, Fla., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Whitney Anruth, a retired school teacher and hobbyist photographer who with her husband and two children has camped and traveled across all forty-eight lower American states, has completed her new book "The Legend of Sweet Tree Water": a wonderful Native American legend about providence.

Author Anruth writes about the moment of discovery: "The sun was low in the sky when Woksis returned with the others, but his face did not wear the smile of a successful hunt.
'We have walked far,' he said. 'We have looked long for the deer and the rabbit, but we have found none. We have peered high for birds, but not even the crow would cease his hiding. We have looked to the rivers, but ice covers them. Tomorrow we will walk toward the warm breeze in search of game. Maybe the Great Spirit will smile.'
'Come,' said Moqua. 'Warm yourself by the fire and eat.' She filled the carved dish Little Squirrel held with the porridge.
Woksis buried his tomahawk in the trunk of the tree and seated himself by the fire. Little Squirrel handed him the bowl of porridge. When his lips closed over the spoon, he grunted. He tilted the bowl toward the light from the fire. 'What have you done to this?' he demanded.
'We have followed the old ways,' Moqua replied. 'It is the corn of the field, the berries of the bush, and the water of the river.'
'The taste is different.'"
