PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Discover spirits, shapeshifters, magic and mystery in 24 enthralling and authentic folk tales collected from across the Caribbean islands, Guyana and Suriname. Blending West African cultural heritage with the rich and diverse storytelling traditions of the Caribbean, each tale has been handed down by generations in story and song. Mixing scary characters and cautionary tales with heroic deeds, misleading appearances, themes of redemption, quests for freedom and stories of good versus evil. Meet La Diablesse from Martinique; shapeshifting Old Higue in Guyana; and the story of 'The Singing Bones' from Haiti. Retold in English by British-Guyanese storyteller Wendy Shearer, each story is prefaced with recollections of members of the Windrush generation.
