Reviews - What do customers think about Caminantes del sol (Spanish Edition)?

An Inca Adventure Story  Nov 11, 2004
As is typical of the well-known Ecuadorian children's writer Edna Iturralde, in Caminantes del Sol she combines historical and ethnic accuracy with an adventure story that will enthrall children (and adults too). An Inca Coya is about to be sent to meet the sun when suddenly the mark of a puma paw appears on her arm. No longer perfect, she escapes as the priests argue about what to do, and then travels with her grandfather to Saraguro, in what is now southern Ecuador, meeting Inca gods and goddesses along the way, using her magic staff to transport herself in time to the Spanish Conquest and present-day Saraguro, and out-witting her bitter enemy, the Inca priest that tried to sacrifice her. Iturralde writes perfect, simple, clear Spanish, making the book ideal practice for Spanish students. The color illustrations are not only beautiful but accurately convey the appearance of Inca buildings and dress. The black and white drawings at the end of each chapter are taken from the illustrations the Spanish explorer Puma made just as the Inca empire was being conquered. This is a unique, original book written from the heart and from the heart of the Andes. Highly recommended!
