Empowered by a dream, Manaha steps before the village fire. Against the taboos of her tribe, she demands that the children hear the truth about their abandoned homelands. Before she can finish her first story, her fire is doused and the children frightened away by Ta-kawa, a devious but respected warrior. He convinces their struggling tribe of survivors to reject the old woman and her stories. Defiant, Manaha continues her nightly story-fire for listeners hiding in the shadows. They learn about the great lost nations, and the ancient homeland decimated a hundred years before by the arrival of the Conquistadors and Hernando de Soto, the one they called Son-of-the-Sun.
Storykeeper is an epic adventure, based on the translations of historic sixteenth-century Spanish documents. However, it is told from the perspective of the people of the Arkansas-Mississippi River Valley, who lived and survived America's deadliest invasion.
