Anpao: An American Indian Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anpao is young and Handsome and Brave — a man any maiden would be proud to call her husband. Any maiden but Ko-Ko-Mik-e-is, that is, who calims she belongs to the Sun alone. And so Anpao sets off for the house of the Sun to ask permission to marry the woman he loves. But Anpao's journey is not an easy one. Before he can reach the Sun, Anapao must travel back in time to the dawn of the world. He must relive his own creation, venture through The World Beneath the World, and battle the many magical mystical creatures of Native American legends. For only by doing so can Anpao discover who he really is, and rove to the Sun why he alone is worthy of the fair Ko-komik-e-is

Synopsis:

The Newbery Honor Award-winning story of a young warrior's mystical search for his own destiny. "A vivid, sensitive rendering".--Booklist. Full color.
