About this title

Synopsis:

The author of THE ROUGH FACE GIRL creates a stunning coming-of-age novel built from a glorious Seneca Indian story cycle.

Cast out of the Seneca tribe because they are unable to help make war, Crow and his grandmother struggle to survive alone. Then Crow hears the magnificent voice of the Storytelling Stone -- an ancient rock that tells tales of the Long Ago Time, when the Sky Woman trod the Above World and a child could alter the ways of a people. As he listens to the Stone's stories, Crow comes to realize his own power to effect change and his destiny as a Seneca and a man. THE WORLD BEFORE THIS ONE laces Seneca legends with Crow's narrative to create a story about stories, how they help us live and grow.
