many of you have heard of the country of El Salvador? It's a small
country in Central America. This story is a telling of a folk story
from the Salvadoran Indians. Rufina Perez' mother takes her
aside one day to tell her the story of Zipitio. He was kidnapped
as a child a long time ago. He nows lives by the river and appears
to young girls. He is a small little creature with backwards feet
and girls are afraid when they first meet him. Rufino's mother tells
her not to be afraid. Seeing Zipitio is just a sign that Rufino is
becoming a woman.
