The Chalchiuhite Dragon

By Kenneth Morris

"This newfound book is a treat, a welcome change from the standard fantasy settings, with engaging characters, a wealth of wonders, and an inner wisdom as rare as it is profound." Kirkus Reviews, Feb. 1, 1992

The Chalchiuhite (pronounced chal'-chih-wee'-tay) is a precious green stone or jewel, carved in the shape of a dragon, whose mysterious appearance in ancient Mesoamerica signals the coming birth of the legendary god-king, Quetzalcoatl. Written at Katherine Tingley's request, this movingly poetic tale is rich in theosophic insight and certain to become a classic.
