By Harriet Rohmer
Illustrated by Joe Sam

Paperback: $9.95

Six Pack: $59.70

Late one Saturday afternoon, three brothers leave their village to hunt wari, the wild pig their people depend on for food. While hunting they discover a magical vine that can make them invisible—but they will only enjoy this power if they promise never to sell the meat they hunt, and never to hunt with guns, only with sticks. All is well until European traders arrive to buy the precious wari meat—and the brothers forget the promises they made so long ago. This is a Miskito version of the classic folk theme of how the very thing that gives you power can turn against you if not respected and used properly.The Invisible Hunters is about caring for our environment and our community, and about not losing sight of what is important.
