One-hundred cold winters have passed since that first tragic encounter with Europeans. Manaha, Mother-of-None steps before the village fire. Rejecting taboos long held by her small tribe of survivors, the old woman demands that the children be allowed to hear stories and the truth about their abandoned homeland, decimated by an army of just three-hundred Conquistadors.
Before Manaha can finish her first story, the fire is doused, and her young listeners are frightened into the shadows. Friends shun her and a tribal elder threatens banishment, but Manaha refuses to stop. The only hope that the unique history and stories, the last remaining essence of a forgotten people, will survive lies with one unlikely Storykeeper.
A tender, poignant, and a powerful story is told from the perspective of the ancient people of the Mississippi River Valley, who outlived America's earliest and deadliest invasion.
