From the Inside Flap

A LEGEND OF GRAND MESA is an American-Native mythical, enchanting and educational story told by the Ute Indians about a mysterious mountain who shields three Gods. Located on the Western Slope of Colorado the mountain blew its top, millions of years ago. This legend has been repeated time and time again by the Natives of the Western Slope. The legend suggests that the natives in this region created a powerful civilization after the volcano explosion making them travel south and later became the Aztec tribe in Mexico. This is a truly wonderful story for children from the ages of 10 through adults. You will enjoy the little animals that talked, and why they were left craved on the mountainside to live forever for all mankind to view. Learn about the explosion on the mountain, and why it was left to be called MESA which means table in Spanish. Grand Mesa is also called "The largest flat top mountain in the world".

As a lover of myths and legends, I was surprised and pleased to read this legend of Grand Mesa. I live in Grand Junction, Colorado which is in the shadow of Grand Mesa. I had never known that there was a legend of Grand Mesa. When I discovered that the author Terri Ragsdale had written this enchanting little children's book herself and had distributed it for years. I was pleased to meet a woman who understood that we all are creators in the best sense of the word and that each of us can create our own legends and myths. In fact I believe that when a person commits to writing myths, divine inspiration will come and provide rich images and materials to every writer. I think this is what happened with Terri -- she was provided by divine inspiration with the story and images for the Legend of Grand Mesa. I was pleased to publish a second edition of Terri's book through my publishing company, Dreamtime Press, and hope you will enjoy A Legend of Grand Mesa.

Steven M. Haney from Mesa Co., CO
A Legend of Grand MesaA legened written about the Ute Indians in Western Slope, Colorado. This mountain is the largest flat top mountain in the world. The book tells the Ute Indian's legend of the days of fore millions of years ago when the earth was just beginning telling about the animals that talked and giiving great discriptions of the animals and what the world was like before the Grand Mesa Blew it's top off and creating the landscape as it can be seen today. You can see some of the animals that were majestically carved in the caves by the by the Gods. I highly recommend this for children and makes a perfect gift for a child or a grand child for birthday or holidays.
