Description
Now in paperback, more than one hundred folktales gathered from the Hispanic and Indian peoples of North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean. Brave princes and daring princesses in search of adventure and romance, henpecked husbands and evil stepmothers, brilliant magicians and mischievous tricksters, scheming witches and benevolent guardian angels, arrogant noblemen and downtrodden peasants: Latin American folktales are filled with both the drama and wonder of the fantastic and the ribald and earthy humor of everyday life. Influenced by the folkloric traditions of the European colonialists, the teachings of the Church, and Native American myths and legends, this completely original storytelling tradition has formed the basis of a vibrant literary heritage. See page 28 for a complete listing of the titles in the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library.
