FORWARD The author, his wife, Juanita and family lived and worked for a number of years in the Departamento de San Martín, Perú in the late sixties and seventies of the last century. They continued to live, serve and work among Quechua/Quichua (Kechwa) speaking peoples until the turn of that century. This, his novel, is based on notes and life experiences at that time and can be read on two levels:
The first level can be described in “art-deco” terms as a “rattling good yarn”; while the second is a serious attempt to describe the tensions and tragedies of First Nation Peoples throughout the world, whose worldviews, land and language come under threat from socio-economic change.
As a close friend and fellow academic, I have never doubted the authors sincerity and Christian holistic commitment to the Amerindian world and though I believe his use of this Quechua dialect may be a little “creaky”, it gives a flavour of a dialect that may well disappear, as so many others have done in the world. I am happy to commend it to you, „gentil lector (dear reader).
