Mexicatl is a young man who grows up to lead his people out of the desert to "a place of water and shade." But before he does this he needs to learn how to make "the highest meet the lowest". When he does, his people are so greatful they name themselves after him. Can you guess who the people were? If you guessed the Mexicans, you're right!
I like this book. It taught me the story of where the original Mexican indians came from, and you can learn why there is an eagle and a snake on a cactus on the flag of Mexico. Check it out.
