Description
Pieces of broken pots are scattered over the desert hillsides of the Southwest. The Indians there treat them with respect -- "Every piece of clay is a piece of someone's life," they say. And the children try to imagine those lives that took place in the desert they think of as their own. Clay has its own small voice, and sings. Its song has lasted for thousands of years. And Byrd Baylor's prose-poem as simple and powerful as the clay pots, sings too.

display_descriptionThe daily life and customs of prehistoric southwest Indian tribes are retraced from the designs on the remains of their pottery. A lyrical consideration of the lives and thoughts of an ancient people whose pottery can still be found in the desert of the American Southwest. "Bahti has filled the pages with evocative pen-and-ink line drawings representing the primitive figures and designs on the pottery . . . The striking effect of the illustrations is matched by Baylor's word images . . ". - School Library Journal.
