Pueblo Storyteller

Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith, Author, Lawrence Migdale, Illustrator Holiday House $17.95 (26p) ISBN 978-0-8234-0864-1
A companion to Totem Pole, this involving photo essay effectively illuminates the lives and folk art of the people of the Cochiti Pueblo near Santa Fe, N.M. The informative account is narrated by April Trujillo, who lives and works with her grandparents, Pueblo potters. Readers learn, along with April, how to make Pueblo Indian Bread (ba'a), how traditional pottery is made, decorated and fired, how a Chochiti drum is made, and more. In the book's final chapter, April and her grandmother share the ancient legend about how their ancestors founded the pueblo along the Rio Grande River--``How the People Came to Earth.'' The bright, crisp, almost shadowless photographs smoothly integrate additional details into the lively text. Includes Glossary and Index. Ages 8-10. (Apr.)
