Sinopse

A magical clock in a castle full of hidden treasures. A family punished for its curiosity by being turned into stone. What do the above scenarios have in common? They are all part of the fabric of Peruvian tales that are retold on the pages ahead. Many cultures express ideas about their past and present through such a richness of myths and legends that magically describe what was, and what could have been, in a specific time and space. Each little Peruvian community I have visited in ceaseless travels across my native land has invariably found me sitting enthralled, by the sides of lagoon, river, or bridge; in a field or on a farm, listening to the wise voices of the people I meet there, and learning from them. I invite you to come along on a wonderful journey where you will meet supernatural characters with wonderful names like Pachamama, Mamakilla, Inti, the Apu spirits, and the Kocha deities, who interact with humans and determine their destiny. I hope that these tales of life, love, curiosity, magic, and adversity will touch you as they did me. Cul es la relacin entre un toro encantado y un sol encadenado intentando buscar su libertad? Qu significa un reloj mgico en un castillo donde se esconden valiosos tesoros inalcanzables para aquellos que los buscan? O dos ancianos convertidos en piedra debido a su curiosidad? Muchas culturas logran expresar su pasado y presente a travs de nutridos mitos y leyendas que mgicamente describen lo que fue o lo que pudo ser en un tiempo y espacio determinados. En cada pequea comunidad del Per que he recorrido, me he sentado fascinada al lado de alguna laguna, rio, puente, pradera o chacra a escuchar y aprender de las voces iluminadas de sus habitantes. Naveguemos juntos por estas sorprendentes narraciones sobre la vida, el amor, la curiosidad, lo mgico y la adversidad, que tienen como elementos principales a Pachamama, Mamakilla, Inti, los Apus y las Kochas, quienes interactan con la humanidad.
