The text is created by an alphabetic intersection and line-by-line weaving of three different accountings of world history that are arranged in a literary concordance. The spine along the north-south axis is composed of 299 words in A-Z order and adapted from 'The End of the World' -- a White River Sioux story. The east west lines of text intersect this story with prose fragments from A Little History of the World by E. H. Gombrich (1936) and Mirrors: Stories of Almost Everyone by Eduardo Galeano (2009)."
