Dreamplace

Overview

A young girl climbs the ladder up from the kiva. She looks about, unsure whom she'll see in the sudden sunlight--Anasazi Indians of 800 years ago, or her family and others on a present-day tour of Mesa Verde, Colorado. Within her, mysterious past has merged with awakened present in words and paintings of the past. Full color.

Present-day visitors describe what they see when they visit the pueblos where the Anasazi lived long ago.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As in their previous collaboration Who Came Down That Road? , Lyon and Catalanotto here offer an atmospheric, shimmering glance backwards--this time at the Anasazi pueblos at Mesa Verde. Although Lyon's poem is told from the point of view and in the tone of a reflective adult, Catalanotto wisely focuses the story through his luminous paintings on the experiences of a girl who visits the canyon as a tourist. She imagines--as if she were dreaming, seeing through the scrim of historical time--the Pueblo people who 800 years before ``plaited sandals, wove baskets / coiled clay into pots.'' Then, ``one day / when even trees were hungry / they turned their backs'' on their cliff dwellings ``leaving us / far in the future'' standing ``amazed / at the people / who built this dream / who lit its walls / with fire and stories.'' In both style and content, the lyrical text may be a bit sophisticated for young readers, but Catalanotto's extraordinary watercolors clarify this journey through time. Ages 4-7. (Mar. )
Ilene Cooper
Joining other tourists, a young girl sees the 800-year-old site of the Anasazi as it is today, dreams of the place as it was when the tribe lived there long ago, and imagines their suffering when drought forced them to leave their home. Simple and direct, Lyon's poetic text sketches the main ideas, while the illustrations define and defy places, people, and times. Sometimes the art portrays modern-day visitors, sometimes, the ancient inhabitants, and in one scene, the place seems to exist in both times at once, the shadowy shapes of the Anasazi coexisting with the more defined figures of contemporary visitors. Rich with atmosphere, delicate with sensitivity, and dreamlike in its evocation of dual realities, this would be an imaginative choice to read before a class trip to any historic site. For a more traditional look at the Anasazi, sees Ayers' "The Anasazi".
