Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
This adaptation of the Pueblo Indian myth explains how the spirit of the Lord of the Sun is brought to the world of men. In this tale, a boy searching for his father is made into an arrow and shot to the sun. When he meets the Lord of the Sun, he is asked to prove himself by passing through the four chambers of ceremony--The Kiva of Lions, The Kiva of Serpents, The Kiva of Bees, and The Kiva of Lightning. The boy uses his bravery to pass these tests and becomes filled with the power of the sun. The Lord then turns him into an arrow and sends him back to the Pueblos. The boy brings the Sun's spirit to the world of man and, as a result, the people celebrate his return with the Dance of Life.
