Lush tropical lands, exotic flora and fauna, colorful clothing, and the spirit and influence of Hinduism are some of the wonders to be seen in Southern India. Among the many lively sounds are the those of traditional and contemporary stories as found in this collection. Tales of tricksters, heroes, and sages as well as modern jokes, true stories, and teaching stories-42 tales total, balanced in length, mood, and age appeal-can be found in this unique anthology. With the stories, the authors give a historical overview of the region and detailed storytelling notes. Color photos and elegant line drawings complement the text, as does a resource listing of books, centers, Web sites, and a calendar of South Indian festivals. A beautiful introduction to a fascinating culture and people.
