FROM THE BOOK
"In the silence of the night when thousands were asleep in the village surrounding the volcanoes these powerful dreamers who have been selected from heaven or by the volcano itself, carry on intense oneiric activity for fulfilling the noble task of appeasing the rain and maintaining the sustenance of the people who inhabit the earth. They travel in dreams, to remote places to spray the earth with huge hoses, accompanied by angels and other celestial spirits; they hold conversations with spirits of ancestors who reveal codes or set them riddles to solve..."

Julio Glockner, 'El monte che humea', in El mito de dos volcanos, excerpted from Pablo Ortiz Monasterio: White Mountain.
