In this third book about Nap#65533;, the government is building a dam, forcing the Mazateca people to make a new village for themselves on inhospitable land. Nap#65533; recounts what she remembers of this time -- traveling upriver to the place where they will resettle, the frighteningly beautiful jaguar she sees by the spring, the fierce fires that clear the land for farming, how her father has to walk all day to a far-off town so that he can buy food for the family. But what stands out in her mind very strongly is the misfortune that occurs when her father is kicked by a horse, which she first envisions in a vivid dream. It is Nap#65533; who hastens back to the village to fetch her mother and uncles, her rapidity ensuring her father's survival.
