About This Item

San Diego: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1992. First printing. Fine in fine jacket.. First edition of this haunting tale told by a Taino boy who tries to warn his people of the dangers posed by the strange white visitors. 11'' x 9''. Original cloth-backed boards. Original unclipped ($14.95) color pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in color. [32] pages.

Synopsis

When Christopher Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador in 1492, what he discovered were the Taino Indians. Told from a young Taino boy’s point of view, this is a story of how the boy tried to warn his people against welcoming the strangers, who seemed more interested in golden ornaments than friendship. Years later the boy, now an old man, looks back at the destruction of his people and their culture by the colonizers.
