Stories from Hispanic and Indian Traditions
Edited and with an Introduction by
Latin America’s storytelling traditions are among the richest in world – and of broader orgins than most. Here the lore of medieval Europe combines with that of the ancient Near East and Pre-Columbian America to offer the eager listener a truly cosmopolitan and universal picture of the world’s secrets, mysteries and everyday truths. This collection – representing the folkloric wealth of 20 countries – is unprecedented in size and scope. Most of the tales have never appeared in English before. Together they become the first panoramic anthology of Hispano-American folk narratives in any language – and will delight you and the children who listen to you tell them for many a year.
