Abundant with imperiled princesses, sorcerers both kind and evil, anthropomorphic animals, otherworldly ghosts, and more engaging characters, this captivating collection of yarns from ancient China offers 73 spellbinding stories. Glowing with timeless myths and legends, the tales have been carefully arranged as "Nursery Fairy Tales," "Legends of the Gods," "Tales of Saints and Magicians," "Nature and Animal Tales," "Ghost Stories," "Historic Legends," and "Literary Fairy Tales."
Selected from original Far Eastern sources and presented here in modern translations by Frederick H. Martens, these magical narratives will strike familiar chords with all readers . . . yet they remain uniquely Chinese, and simply wonderful!
