The Sea-Ringed World: Sacred Stories of the Americas

by María García Esperón Author and Amanda Mijangos Illustrator

In this powerful collection of stories about the 'sea-ringed world,' experience indigenous storytelling dating back fifteen thousand years before Europeans set foot in the Americas. Through oral histories and cultural memory, Native Americans from Patagonia to Alaska have preserved stories of their past and their folklore and passed on these stories for generations. Author María García Esperón collects and chronicles these tales for the reader, and brings them into a world as yet unspoiled by European barbarity and imperialism. Learn about the worlds the indigenous people of the Americas inhabited, their relationships with the divine, and how they sought to understand their place in the universe.
