Short biography
Gayle Ross is a professional storyteller who has appeared at storytelling festivals around the United States for over fifteen years. A direct descendant of John Ross, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation during the Trail of Tears. Ms. Ross says, "The histories of the Cherokee were family stories. My grandmother, Anne Ross Piburn, lived with my family and was well known as a storyteller and fiercely proud Cherokee woman. Though I was quite young when she died, it is from her that I inherited my love of traditional storytelling. In my work today, no stories are nore delightful for me to tell than the animal tales of the Cherokee." Ms. Ross lives in Fredericksburg, Texas, with her husband and two children. [from How Turtle's Back was Cracked (1995)]
