Read full description of the books:



An excellent collection. It contains 602 folktales from a part of the world that is little known to Westerners. Each tale comes with detailed information such as the origin of the story, motif numbers from the Thompson motif index (when applicable), the original culture and language it belongs to, and translation notes. It is an amazing undertaking that resulted in a great resource of tales.
The stories themselves initially might sound strange to Western readers, but there is enough of them to lull you into a pattern, and after the first 100 pages one begins to recognize patterns, and learn things about the local flora and fauna. I loved it that it is full of folktales and legends about "exotic" animals such as cassowaries and marsupials. Some tales were truly beautiful, while others were violent but intriguing. It is a fascinating read.
