Description

This is the story of a Native American Indian girl who falls from a cliff. Afterward, it is the struggles of her family that we experience as we learn how they deal with their daughter's sad and untimely passing and how, in the end, the magic of corn and nature brings them back together. How the story came about? I wrote this story while living in California near an area called "The Back Bay." This is a small patch of land which thankfully thus far, has been left in a natural state. During the colonial American period this area too was the home to many native American Indian Tribes and indigenous peoples. At some point, I began to walk my dog in the back bay. One day, as I was sitting on a rock, I began to see a story unfold in my minds eye. I thought the story touched me and I wrote it here. What was the source of inspiration? Everyone will have a different opinion about it. As for me, in the days that followed, I learned that CORN has many special natural and supernatural qualities for many of the indigenous groups and peoples in the Americas. Overall, the original fairy tale here, is a story of supernatural love. And so, based on this, I believe that it is suitable for adults of all ages to read. It may or may not be suitable for people under the age of 18 depending on parental religious belief systems. As the author, I leave it 100% to your discretion to decide whether this is suitable for your child to read. Also, please note that I am a Latin American woman bu not a native American tribe representative. As such, this story is not meant to be accurate or true to form to any specific native American traditions. Mostly, I am a creative artist and writer and this story is meant to entertain. Thank you.
