About this Item

From the Yaqui Bow Leaders' Society. Recorded, translated, and annotated by Larry Evers and Felipe S. Molina. Illustrated with drawings by Cynthia Miller. Tucson: Chax Press, 1990. Folio, illustrated handmade paper over boards, with a cloth spine. 44 pages, printed letterpress in three colors throughout, on three kinds of handmade paper. Beautifully illustrated by Cynthia Miller. Limited to 100 copies. Light wear to top of wrapper spine, else fine.A superb creation of this noted Tucson private press. It sold out shortly after publication. "April 11, 1987, on the eve of Palm Sunday, with an Easter moon on the rise, the Coyotes came back to Old Pascua. And with them came a traditional genre of poetic expression that has not been performed in that Yaqui Indian community since 1941. We write to tell a part of the story of that return and to offer transcriptions and translations of the nine songs to which the Coyotes danced the night they came back.". Bookseller Inventory # 520
