The Snake Prince and Other Stories
Burmese Folk Tales
collected and retold by Edna Ledgard

5 1/2 x 8 1/4 • 256 pages • b&w illus.
ISBN 9781566563130 • paperback • $15.00

The people of Burma/Myanmar call it Shwe Pyidaw, the Golden Land, their fertile valley cradled in a horseshoe of mountains. When squabbling Western nations vied for control of the newly-mapped country a century ago, the local population had already lived in the mountainous land for over a millenium. Throughout those centuries, the legends and tales rooted in animist religions created a rich tapestry of spirits that underlie the later arrival of Buddhism. "Nat" spirits, dragons, winged lion-dogs, ogres, mythical galon birds, sorceresses and many more populated the land.

This volume brings together 25 of the most-loved of these folk tales.
