On the island of Limuw, where the heavens touch the sea, Hutash the earth goddess walked alone...
...until she planted the seeds from a sacred plant. Instead of flowers, beautiful people came forth from each plant and populated the lush island, forming the Chumash tribe. The Tribe flourished, but when the people became too numerous for their island, Hutash knew she must send half of them to the land across the water.
This unusual legend reveals how she accomplished this dangerous task- and how she saved some of the Chumash from drowning by transforming them into dolphins.
In a reverential retelling, Audrey Wood beautifully captures the spirit of this creation myth, and Robert Florczak's dramatic paintings bring to life the beauty of the Chumash people, their culture, and their environment.About the Author:
AUDREY WOOD is the much-loved author of more than thirty books for children, including the bestselling The Napping House, Piggies, Heckedy Peg, and most recently, Piggy Pie Po, which she collaborated on with her husband, Don Wood. She lives in Hawaii.
