Content descriptions

General Note: Title from eBook information screen.
Summary, etc.: Although most Western readers associate the term "fairy tales" with the Teutonic and English folk tale tradition, such as is evidenced in the works collected by the Brothers Grimm, Eastern countries like India have their own body of fairy tales, as well. Although infused with local flavor, many of these tales bear a striking structural and thematic similarity to those with which Western readers are familiar. Take a literary tour through India's rich folk tale tradition in this comprehensive volume by historian and folklorist Joseph Jacobs.
