Rich in cultural significance, each title in this bestselling series includes a collection of twenty to thirty tales together with an introduction and an historical overview that give the reader compelling insights into the culture, the folk literature, and the lives of the people in the region.The people of Burma/Myanmar call it Shwe Pyidaw, the Golden Land, their fertile valley cradles in a horseshoe of mountains. When squabbling Western nations vied for control of the newly-mapped country a century ago, the local population had already lived in the mountainous land for over a millenium. Throughout those centuries, the legends and tales rooted in animist religions created a rich tapestry of spirits that underlie the later arrival of Buddhism. This volume brings together twenty-five of the most-loved of these folktales.
