Stories like this have been told literally thousands of times in homes all across the Southwest. Venerated since the eighth century, the Santo Nio is an important part of both the Native American and the Hispanic traditions. People pray to the Santo Nio for healing, mainly of children, and devoted pilgrims frequently leave childrens shoes at his shrines.

Many believe that he wears the shoes out at night when he goes walking secretly visiting children while they are asleep in order to heal them. The most famous shrines to the Santo Nio are in Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico and Chimay, New Mexico. This story was written in the 1930s by famed New Mexico author Peggy Pond Church and lost for almost seven decades.

Re-discovered, it is now brought back to life with full-color illustrations by award-winning Santa Fe artist Charlie Carrillo.
