Excerpt from the Author's Note: 'The narrative of the beginning of the Ati is purely fictional. However, there really is an old, old settlement which the indigenes call the Mamalang Pan-ay nestled between the highlands of Binitanga and Malia-o. Similarly, the tale of of the antecedents of Polpulan and Marikudo is largely fiction; while the story of the coming of the Bornay datus and the legendary purchase of the lowlands of Madia-as from the Ati makes use of details of Monetclaro's Maragtas, and also folk traditions regarding the sale and the eventual return of the Ati to the mountain fastnesses.'
