Lautaro, Halcón Veloz

De Nibaldo Mosciatti
Illustrated by Francis Xavier Olea

Lautaro was a happy boy until the arrival of the Spanish changed his world. The invaders killed his father and took him prisoner, making him Pedro de Valdivia's groom. But he never forgot his Mapuche origin, and when he could he escaped to fight the Spanish. This is the story of his life, his war and his death.

My son loved it and my deep admiration for Lautaro revived me. So necessary now, to begin to revalue the temper and worldview of our native peoples.
