"The one who tells the stories rules the world."—Hopi
Storytelling is an integral part of Pueblo life—reaching back in time to inform and delight. Through these stories, life's wisdom is passed from generation to generation. Beautiful full-color paintings and spot illustrations by Land Eagle of the Taos Pueblo, accompany the nineteen stories included in this book.
The art of creating clay Storytellers, also known as "Singing Mothers," is a Pueblo tradition. The Storyteller featured on the cover was designed by Bea Loretto of the Jemez Pueblo.
