Item description for Verde fue mi selva (Spanish Edition) by Edna Iturralde...

Skipping Stones Honor Award Winner for ethnic and intercultural diversity in the United States 2002

In this book Edna Iturralde writes twelve stories that portray the way of life of the people who live in the East part of Ecuador; the green pastures to the right of the great mountains. It is called the East for its forest, exotic animals, and indigenous towns that many people ignore exist. Twelve stories created by her imagination yet based on facts after traveling to the East and meeting the people who inhabit it. She studied their way of life, observed and felt their culture, understood them and was able to write being faithful to those people and their world.

Description in Spanish:Edna Iturralde escribe en este libro doce historias que tienen que ver con la forma de vivir de las personas que habitan en el Oriente. Cuando uno aprende Geografa y estudia el mapa poltico del Ecuador, ve esa parte verde que queda a la derecha de las montaas: el pedazo verde ms grande del mapa. Lo llamamos Oriente por su selva, animales exticos, colonos y pueblos indgenas que mucha gente apenas conoce. Doce historias creadas por su imaginacin pero que no son completamente inventadas porque ella viaj al Oriente y conoci a las personas que lo habitan, estudi sobre su manera de vivir y sentir la vida, observ con ojos atentos su cultura y as ella sinti, entendi y pudo escribir siendo fiel a esas personas y su mundo. Este libro es ganador del premio: Skipping Stones Honor Award a la diversidad tnica e intercultural Estados Unidos 2002. ( Skipping Stones Honor Award for Multicultural Children's Literature 2002)

Reviews - What do customers think about Verde fue mi selva (Spanish Edition)?

Children Stories from the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest  Oct 1, 2007
Verde fue mi selva is Edna Iturralde's most well-known and popular book. Published in Mexico and Spain, as well as Ecuador, it is being used widely in schools in all three countries. It contains two original short stories about each of Ecuador's six remaining this site indigenous groups, told from the point-of-view of the indigenous children themselves. This book is Iturralde's writing for children at its very best, with its simple, limpid style, and reflects her profound understanding of how children think and feel, while also conveying accurately the culture of each of the distinct indignous groups. In short, this is a wonderful, book: the Ecuadorean equivalent of the Welsh classic How Green Was my Valley.
