Description

Fifteen thousand years before Europeans stepped foot in the Americas,
people had already spread from tip to tip and coast to coast. Like all
humans, these Native Americans sought to understand their place in the
universe, the nature of their relationship with the divine, and the
origin of the world into which their ancestors had emerged.

The answers lay in their sacred stories.

Author Maria Garcia Esperon, illustrator Amanda Mijangos, and
translator David Bowles have gifted us a treasure. Their talents have
woven this collection of stories from nations and cultures across our
two continents-the Sea-Ringed World, as the Aztecs called it-from the
edge of Argentina all the way up to Alaska.

The Em Querido list
seeks to introduce the finest books in translation from around the world
to an American audience. We feel lucky to be bringing you this book on
our inaugural list, which we hope will be a true window and mirror.
