The Great Ball PlayPaperback - 1998
Based on a southeastern Native American Creek tale about the time the animals and birds played a great game of lacrosse. Neither side wanted Bat. The birds said he was an animal, the animals said he was a bird. But it was Bat who helped the animals win, and that is why bats are considered animals even though they have wings.
