Boy Who Wouldn't Obey A Mayan Legend

't obey

According to Mayan legend, Chac is one of the gods of the sky who control rain, wind, thunder, and lighting. With his bottomless gourd of rain, his bag of winds, his booming drum, and his flashing ax, Chac is a mighty lord. But all his powers can't give him the patience to handle a mischievous mortal boy he plucks from the forest to be his servant. This particular boy rarely does what he's told on Earth, much less in the heavens...---from the publisher
