The Village that was Buried by an Erupting Volcano is the real story about a community of Maya Indigenous peoples buried and preserved under volcanic ash for 1400 years. Opening with a foreword by the site’s archaeologist, Payson Sheets, PhD, it was written and illustrated by Larios. The narrative was inspired by her first son Yax (the Green Child who helps his father grow maize) and the UNESCO World Heritage, Joya de Cerén archaeological site in her native El Salvador.

This trilingual title: English, Spanish and New Maya Language pictoglyphs, comes with a cut, paste and pictoglyph© creation activity. It was published on march 6, 2014 for all Mesoamerican boys and girls by the Dirección Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural, Secretaría de Cultura de la Presidencia.
