Anpao: An American Indian Odyssey

Anpao: An American Indian Odyssey

Jamake Highwater, a Native American poet and author, tells the story of Anpao, the son of the Sun, from the earth’s creation to the arrival of Europeans in the Americas. Taken from his Newbery Honor–winning book, Highwater’s reading of his stories leads the listener through Anpao’s journey from seeking out his father to coming back to his future wife. With a riveting plot and strong focus on nature, Highwater’s work is regarded as a “cultural autobiography” and a valuable retelling of the Native American creation story. Liner notes include a plot summary and brief biographical information about the author.
