- DescriptionTwo internationally acclaimed artists create a groundbreaking, genre-defying adventure to transcend time, place, and identity. In the cold rth where the white wind blows lives Sixteen-Face John, a shaman. His wife is expecting their first child a soonchild. But Soonchild won t come out! So John sets out to find the World Songs that inspire all soonchildren to leave the womb. Along the way, he must shift shape and size, converse with animals and ancestors, and face demons and death. But he also pursues an elusive golden-eyed presence that hints at a connection with his past. This breathtaking vel, as exciting as it is spooky, is a lyrical tribute to the forces of nature, magic, and family.
