Fifteen thousand years before Europeans stepped foot in the Americas, people had already spread from tip to tip and coast to coast. Like all humans, these Native Americans sought to understand their place in the universe, the nature of their relationship with the divine, and the origin of the world into which their ancestors had emerged. The answers lay in their sacred stories, some recorded in The Sea-Ringed World.

Author Maíra Garíca Espeórn, illustrator Amanda Mijangos, and translator David Bowles have gifted us a treasure. Their talents have woven this collection of stories from nations and cultures across our two continents--The Sea-Ringed World, as the Aztecs called it--from the edge of Argentina all the way up to Alaska.
