Product Description:

For centuries, corn has been a staple of Mayan life. Corn provides nourishment, and it can be sold to purchase necessities. This book tells the story of a Mayan family living in the Yucatan, struggling to plant and harvest the corn they need to survive. Twelve-year-old Tigre must shoulder the burden, because his father is badly injured and his mother and grandmother cannot do all the work on their own. This story is rich in Mayan folklore and customs, and is enhanced with beautiful charcoal illustrations. A glossary of Spanish, Maya, and Mexican words used in the text is located in the back. A Newbery Honor Book. By Dorothy Rhoads. 88 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
