The Hero Twins tells the story of two brothers born to Changing Woman and trained by the Holy People to save their people from the naayee', a race of monsters. But the naayee' can't be beaten alone. Family and friends and wise mentors must lead any warrior down the good path toward victory. Colourful illustrations show the action as the twins seek out their father to receive the weapons they need to face the greatest monster of them all: Ye'iitsoh.

Told in Navajo, the Dine language, and English, this story exists in many versions, and all demonstrate the importance of thinking, patience, persistence, bravery, and reverence. These teachings still help the Dine-and everyone-find the harmony of a balanced and braver life.
