With the impending wind of war, sixteen-year old princess Daragang Magayon prepares for battle in this epic re-invention of the myth of the active volcano, Mayon, in Bobis’ home province. The myth is about the tragic princess sacrificed for her father and tribe, but as Bobis writes in the preface:
When I considered the mountain more closely … I thought I heard rumours from her wounds of many eruptions. Ancient storylines different from those I had been told as a child. She was singing them.
I listened and began to sing with her.
