The Bravest Flute by Ann Grifalconi

A Story of Courage in the Mayan Tradition
A boy has the honor to lead the villagers into the center of town to welcome the new year.  He leads the procession by playing his flute and wearing a drum on his back.   He is weak from little food over the winter. If he leads well, the elders will reward him with pesos with which he can buy food for his family and more seed corn.  Will he survive the long trek or collapse?
