Enchant readers and listeners with more than 60 tales from Mongolia.
From the descendants of the Huns and the mighty warrior, Chinggis Khan (or, as he is known to Westerners, Genghis Khan), and the land of the steppes and the Gobi Desert, come tales of passion, strife, magic, and laughter. This collection of traditional Mongolian folktales, the only one of its kind currently available in English, features more than 60 fascinating stories, ranging from The Legend of the Magic Bone and Seven Brown Mice to The Dreaming Boy and A Fiery Red Khan. The tales are organized in chapters that cover legends, myths, animal tales, magical tales, stories of life conditions, and humor. In addition, the authors provide an introduction to Mongolia, games, recipes, color photos, and notes on the stories. All levels.
