From a region of spectacular beauty, gentle people, and deep spirituality come some of the world's most enchanting tales. This collection of tales, the only one of its kind currently available in the United States, introduces you to the treasures of an ancient and rapidly changing culture. Selected and translated by Kavita Ram Shrestha of Nepal and edited by Sarah Lamstein, the 15 stories range in tone from the playful King Silly and Minister Sloppy to the haunting Uttis Tree. Tales are supplemented by color photographs; line drawings; and an introduction to the history, geography, and culture of the country. A generous bibliography leads readers to further resources.
