Mud Witch Boy speaks in grunts, growls and whistles. He hears stories from the earth he digs and shapes.|
A figure riding a dog-like creature is etched high upon the canyon walls. Ancient pot shards show the same mysterious images. But not even the storyteller Dreaming Bear can tell you what these images mean or the story behind them. When the people lost their dreams, they forgot how to read the signs and images. They forgot their knowledge of "Animal Wisdom."
For the prehistoric cave-dwelling people, life hasn't been the same since the explosion. Forced to leave the canyon they struggle to adjust to life out on the prairie and live in fear of the angry ghost animals that still reside high above them. Then comes Mud Boy- grunting the language of wild beasts. Constantly scratching images and symbols in the dirt, this mysterious creature-seemingly more animal than human-frightens the people with his strange behavior. But the boy has a message that could help them regain their harmony with nature-and learn to dream again. Can they look past what they don't understand to appreciate his important gift?
Rich in symbolism, Mud Witch Boy examines the nature of the unknown and the forces of nature-and our place in it-for a powerful adventure that will not soon be forgotten.
