Quincy, CA (Vocus) September 14, 2010
In anticipation of the prestigious Frankfurt International Book Fair, leading self-publisher Xlibris announced today the availability of Cuauhtémoc: Descending Eagle, a fascinating book authored by d l davies.
Cuauhtémoc is set in South America in the early 16th century, a time when the world seemed to be expanding at an almost exponential rate. Readers will meet Cuauhtémoc, who was born in a small village in the northwestern part of Maya. The story follows his life from birth, through birdman-school, where he learns to become a birdman and carry messages. The account unwinds, telling of his adventures, his fights with pirate raiders, as well as some of his own people. How his life will turn out will keep readers engaged right until the very end.
Cuauhtémoc is highly recommended to readers who enjoy cultural epics as well as historical fiction. It is priced at $19.99 in paperback format, $29.99 in hardback format, and $9.99 in electronic book format. It will be featured at the Frankfurt International Book Fair which will be held from October 6 to 10, 2010 in Germany. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com or call toll free (888) 795-4274 today.
