Description
"To read this book is to hear the voices of the ancestors and spirits telling us where we came from, who we are, and where we must go."--Maxine Hong Kingston In its extraordinary range of character and culture, Almanac of the Dead is fiction on the grand scale. The acclaimed author of Ceremony has undertaken a weaving of ideas and lives, fate and history, passion and conquest in an attempt to re-create the moral history of the Americas, told from the point of view of the conquered, not the conquerors.
