The Pomegranate Princess : And Other Tales From India
Edward HowerISBN: 059533671X;
Book DescriptionOn these pages we meet adventurous princes, romantic princesses, wily peasants, tricky animals--and an abundance of monsters, djinns , gods, goddesses, and powerful magicians. In colorful, exotic settings reminiscent of The Arabian Nights , brave heroes and virtuous heroines triumph over the forces of evil, often with fantastical or comic results. These folktales, collected orally in the desert state of Rajasthan in 1986-87, are eloquent reflections of the great culturaltraditions of India, and are stories that bring enchantment to audiences everywhere.
