The author's small son, Deric, was adopted by the Zunis, and as he sat as the feet of the elders of the tribe and listened to tales, "..then came the wish to give other American children the privilege of hearing some of the most beautiful stories ever imagined, and stories that are not borrowed from an other land, but are of the soil of our great Southwest." The elegant illustrations are carefully researched and based on authentic Zuñi designs and customs. As a teenager, Deric, the stepson of the Southwest archeologist Jesse Nubbaum, wrote two books about his time with the Southwest Indians.
