Synopses & Reviews
Cultural Writing. Native American Studies. In a luminescent testimony to the ancient teaching ability of story, internationally acclaimed lecturer, artist and author of Secrets of the Talking Jaguar, and Long Life, Honey in the Heart, Martin Prechtel brings alive the powerful Tzutujil Mayan tale of THE DISOBEDIENCE OF THE DAUGHTER OF THE SUN. Prechtel's gripping and inimitable style gives the reader a beautifully told and illustrated tale followed by five "layers" of commentary that present the deeper Indigenous understandings buried in the story, as well as Prechtel's own thoughts for modern people, on global warming, ecstasy and time.
