Description
A treasury of tales about merfolk and water spirits from different cultures, ranging from Scottish selkies to Hindu water-serpents to Chilean sea fairies. All tales are accompanied by commentary that explores their undercurrents, showing us how public perceptions of this popular mythical hybrid -- at once a human and a fish -- illuminate issues of gender, spirituality, ecology, and sexuality. -- adapted from back cover.
