Publisher's Summary

Meet Ambrosia, one of Gitchi Manitou's helpers. Ambrosia tells the story of the beginning. In the beginning, Gitchi Manitou created the earth on which we live. First Gitchi Manitou created the creatures of lights, mountains, trees, fish, birds, and mammals. At this time Gitchi Manitou also created the shires of Eden, Agartha, Atlantis, Shambhala, Aztlan, and Camelot. Over time, the creatures start to forget about the shires, so Gitchi Manitou creates the train to take them to the shires so they can better remember them. 

Ambrosia is a marvelous storyteller, telling all about the creatures and the other helpers. Besides loving to talk, Ambrosia also loves to eat and interrupts the story from time to time to talk about what they're eating right then. 

Some more memorable quotes: 

Fish also came in a variety of styles, but it wasn't as interesting a variety as with trees. I'm just saying, personally, I don't think three really counts as variety. Fish might argue that point, but I don't think they have a strong case. Ah, lunchtime! Sanjits, is it? Surprise, surprise! You could be so kind as to pass me one of them, pretty please. And some mayonnaise. And some mustard. No, I'm not eating two sanjits. I'm eating one double-decker sanjit. 

Now, where was I? Oh yes. The creatures. Of course there's no creatures on this sanjit. Don't be daft! Those are my hands! Now what happened in the beginning? Oh yes, I remember. No, don't remind me. I remember. It was a long time ago, it just took me a few seconds to call up that particular memory. Yes, I know, you all could tell it better. Yes, you were there, too. But I'm telling this story. Somebody else can tell the next one.
