Generations have passed since the arrival of Hernando De Soto and 350 conquistadors in 1541. Manaha, empowered by a dream and against the taboos of her small tribe of survivors, demands that the children be allowed to hear her stories. The past-down stories are about their once grand homeland of twelve different nations, interconnected villages and capital towns comparable in size to European cities of the time. Now, an empty land decimated and cursed by wars, plagues and famines. Before Manaha can finish her first story, the fire is doused, and her young listeners are frightened into the shadows. Friends shun her and tribal elders threaten banishment, but Manaha refuses to stop. The only hope that the unique history and stories, the last remaining essence of a forgotten people, will survive lies with one unlikely Storykeeper. “A stunning novel and a joy to read” Helen Hollick, Historical Novel Society (Editor’s Choice)
