In this Choctaw variant of Aesop's fable The Tortoise and the Hare, storyteller Tim Tingle reveals some unexpected twists and expands the cast to include a wild turkey, a colony of ants, and a cheering squad of Little Bitty Turtles.
When Rabbit boastfully challenges Turtle to a race, he gets his comeuppance...and Turtle gets a little assist from his winged friend, Turkey. In the process, we learn why Turtle's shell is cracked and why you never see Rabbit racing Turtle today.
