Child of the Flower-Song People: Luz Jiménez, Daughter of the Nahua

By Gloria Amescua (Author), Duncan Tonatiuh (Illustrator)

In this biography of a little-known Indigenous (Nahua) woman who helped preserve and impart knowledge of her language and culture to scholars, artists and future generations, Amescua lyrically weaves the story of Luz Jiménez’s quiet strength and perseverance with Aztec myths, true stories, and dramatic episodes in Jiménez’s life.
