The Hero Twins tells the story of two brothers born to Changing Woman and trained by the Holy People to save their people from the naayéé?, a race of monsters. But the naayéé? can?t be beaten alone. Family and friends and wise mentors must lead any warrior down the good path toward victory. Colorful illustrations show the action as the twins seek out their father to receive the weapons they need to face the greatest monster of them all: Yé?iitsoh.
