Runs Like The Wind was a young girl who lived in a southwest New Mexico Mimbres pueblo long ago. Her little brother, Sleeps Too Much, fell asleep one day while watching wild turkeys that were important to his pueblo. He dreamed of hearing the ferocious roar of a mountain lion…or was the roar real? He told his cousin Hits With His Fist about hearing the lion’s roar. Strong Bear, the children’s father, knew Sleeps Too Much had a big imagination. He doubted the story his son told about the lion. The village elders began to doubt him as well. Would his sister believe him? This is a story of how Runs Like The Wind learns about trustworthiness, and is the fourth book in a series written to help children learn about good character traits. The children’s adventures are brought to life through the illustrations of everyday life as depicted on the pottery bowls by Mimbres artists of a thousand years ago. Teachers, librarians, parents, and children of all ages will enjoy this pictorial narrative. Illustrated.
Twin sisters Carilyn Alarid and Marilyn Markel are dedicated to helping children learn to have respect for the individual and cultural differences of all people. Carilyn is a Behavior Consultant who trains adults in nonviolent crisis intervention. Marilyn teaches archaeology and the increasing need to preserve and protect southwest New Mexico’s cultural heritage. Born and raised in New Mexico, these sisters have the utmost respect for native cultures both past and present. Their previous books in the “Mimbres Children” series, Old Grandfather Teaches a Lesson, Talks All Day Has the Courage to Speak, and Hits With His Fist Gives a Helping Hand, were also published by Sunstone Press.
