2nd EDITION: The Village that Buried by an Erupting Volcano
The Village Buried by an Erupting Volcano is the trilingual story of an indigenous maya community which was buried and preserved for 1400 years. The story is inspired by the Joya de Cerén archeological site, declared a World Heritage by UNESCO, and in Larios’ sons: Yax (the Green Child), and his brother K’al, who eats “tamales.” The book, written and illustrated by Larios, opens with a foreword by archaeologist Payson Sheets, PhD, principal researcher of the site.
