They destroyed it almost immediately, but not before many of the ancient Nahuatl texts complied by Indian elders were set down. From this wealth, Toni de Gerez has selected, retold, and reshaped "fragments" from the songs and thoughts of these festival-loving "coyote-hungry-for-wisdom" people. ; B&W Illustrations; 56 pages
