Arrow to the Sun

Arrow to the Sun

by Gerald McDermott Illustrated by Gerald McDermott

An expression of the universal myth of the hero-quest, this beautiful story also portrays the Indian reverence for the source of life: the Solar Fire. Vibrant full-color illustrations capture the boldness and color of Pueblo art.
