100pp + [8] Illustrated. Topical index. Bibliography. A very good, clean, bright very tight copy. (binding somewhat overglued) A subjective, perhaps idiosyncratic selection of 140 brief folktales from the extensive canon of Latvian folk stories. Each ranging mostly from a brief sometimes enigmatic paragraph or two to some of about a page in length. This particular selection reflects a perhaps naive, unsophisticated, sometimes profound natural unlettered awareness of the idigenous people. As insightfull as these folktales may be, the selection is probably more suitable for the folklorist rather than the young reader. Selected and translated from the Latvian by Alexis Rubulis.
