Full Description

Instead of having your students buy individual author volumes (e.g. Grimm or Andersen folktales), your students will have access in one single volume to a variety of short pieces from different collections and authors. This scrupulously researched anthology of traditional literature is a useful tool for making stories from diverse cultures, sometimes difficult to find, accessible to both students and professors by giving the cultural contexts of international fables, folktales, myths, and legends.
