Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
Green (anthropology, Texas A&M), who has written other folklore reference works, has done an exemplary job of gathering folktales from around the world and presenting them in a well-organized, accessible format for the interested general reader. The four volumes are divided by world region, with separate sections presenting the folktales of individual cultures, and an introduction by Green for each volume giving an overview to the folklore of the region. Each tale is preceded by information detailing its tradition bearer, source, date, original source, and national origin, and a short introduction describing the story's main theme, context, style of presentation, or other salient feature of the story. The folk tales are written in a uniform style to facilitate accessibility; some have been abridged. Terminology found in the glossary is placed in bold type in all the introductions. Each volume includes a glossary, bibliography for that volume and a cumulative index. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
