A True Story of Indian Legend Magic, Love and Faith in God

Oklahoma, in what once was known as Indian Country, farmer Woody Maxwell is on the verge of losing his farm and all of his crops from a severe drought. The farmer's young daughter wants to help her dad and believes the magic of an Indian Legend will make it rain and discovers the "magic" of prayer.

In olden times, Native American Indians had a unique way to make it rain.

Wonderful Children's Book
"The Rain Snake" is a wonderful children's book. I loved the illustrations and thought the story was a great tale of faith and determination. I believe children will enjoy how this tale is woven together with past Indian customs and beliefs. It was an interesting touch to add clippings of newspaper articles from that time to show how prayer was used to receive the much needed rain. This book is a must have for anyone looking for a way to discuss how important prayer is with their children. Regina Puckett

Amazing Story
The Rain Snake is a wonderful story that brought back so many memories of my youth growing up in North Texas. I especially liked this children's book written by the author (Jeannie Walker) because it is her true story as a young girl, of the power of prayer and Indian customs. The illustrations are great and I can't wait to read The Rain Snake to my great nieces and nephews.

Delightful and Heartwarming
This is a short book that you'll be able to read to your kids as a single, bed-time story. It is probably suitable for youngsters aged from two to ten, although some older children may also enjoy it.
Written by true crime author, Jeannie Walker, from her point of view, when she was a little girl growing up on an Oklahoma farm, the story has an old-fashioned innocence unusual in today's high-tech world but is charming and refreshing. It is a story of a community waiting for rain to arrive to save them from a devastating drought -- that seems certain to force them off the land -- and the simple faith of the people, that providence will provide.
What makes the tale even more interesting is, it is in fact a true story and was reported as such in Life Magazine at the time. A copy of the original article is included at the end of the book and makes fascinating reading.
Kids will enjoy this delightful story.
