CHamoru Legends: A gathering of stories retells twelve CHamoru legends with personal reflections from author Teresita Lourdes Perez. Each legend is complemented by a unique illustration by Guam artists. The legends are also translated in the CHamoru language by Maria Ana Tenorio Rivera.
This is a reversible book featuring the legends in English on one side and in CHamoru on the other. Through these layers of interpretation, the book weaves together wisdom and cultural lessons like the leaves used to shape the CHamoru guåfak, or mat, upon which the earliest CHamoru storytellers sat sharing their versions of these timeless tales.
