    About The Book

    In this reissue of John Bierhorst and Robert Andrew Parker’s fresh, authoritative retelling of the Iroquois creation story, the world as we know it today begins with a woman and her two small children, whose voices she hears coming from “under her heart.” Using her powers of creation, she forms the earth itself, then throws a handful of stars into the air. As her twin children are born, joining her in her work, all nature comes to life — soil, trees, birds, animals, rivers, and the seasons. Simple, yet profound in its imagery, the story explains how there are two minds in the universe — one that is hard and one that is gentle — and how we ourselves are all children of the woman who fell from the sky.
