Cover Contest 2017: America Túwaqachi
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Historical'
Trickster Coyote, in any of his many guises, may or may not let the revelation of truth come our way. The formation of this planet. The separating waltz of the continents. The construction and destruction of the first lands, or worlds. And the eventual creation by beaver or beetle or muskrat, or perhaps tectonic movement, of that which would one day be named America. These stories have been told and retold with the certainty of the spider hole woven into the center of any well-made blanket. Yet likewise with the agreed-upon uncertainty of which direction the wind blows above the valiant warrior’s lodge.
The legend of America and our family begins.
