Patrice Sherman (au); R. Gregory Christie (il)
There once was a time when the people of the earth did not have to tend the fields, for the Sunís daughters -- Maize, Pumpkin, and Red Bean -- walked among them, leaving lush crops in their wake. But then Maize disobeyed her mother and wandered into the forest, where she was trapped by cold, lonely Silver. The Sun vowed not to touch the earth again until Maize was returned. How the tiny pewee bird saved Maize and the people is eloquently told in this tale based on an Iroquois legend. The lyrical text, filled with lovely and unusual images, is brought to life by award-winning illustrator R. Gregory Christieís stunning full-color paintings. Juvenile audiences. Reinforced library binding.
