Overview
Tetl s skin is brown, his eyes are black, and his hair is long. He s different from the other children, whose taunts wound him deeply, leaving him confused and afraid. But Tetl s grandmother knows the ancient teachings of their Aztec ancestors, and how they viewed the earth as alive with sacred meaning. With her help, he learns to listen to the mountains, wind, corn, and stones. Tetl's journey from self-doubt to proud acceptance of his Nahuatl heritage is told in a series of powerful poems, beautifully expressed in both English and Spanish. Vivid illustrations celebrate nature s redemptive powers, offering a perfect complement to the poignant story."
