Village Buried by Erupting Volcano Children's Book
The Village that was Buried by an Erupting Volcano is the real story about a community of Maya Indigenous peoples buried and preserved under volcanic ash for nearly 1500 years. Opening with a foreword by the site’s archaeologist, Payson Sheets, PhD, it was written and illustrated by Larios. The narrative was inspired by her first son Yax (the Green Child who helps his father grow maize) and the UNESCO World Heritage Joya de Cerén archaeological site.
