Joy, Flora
Intended for teachers of middle and secondary schools, this book presents folk-stories to provide readers (listeners) with insight into other cultures. The book is organized into eight sections, each featuring a country or a people. Each section has a divider page (which gives the story title, the country or region of the culture, and a map), a page of contributors information, background material, the folktale or legend, and follow-up information. Sections (countries and contributors) are as follows: (1) Uganda: "A Bride for a Hundred Cows" (Carole Walton); (2) Bolivia: "The Legend of Corn" (Maricarmen Ohara); (3) Sri Lanka: "The Jackal's Judgment" (Margaret Lawrence); (4) Korea: "A Thirst for Knowledge" (Roger Petersen); (5) Bulgaria: "Clever Peter and the Sultan" (Priscilla Howe); (6) Germany: "The Lorelei" (Wendy Welch); (7) Macedonia: "Nasreddin Odjah's Clothes" (Steven Kardaleff); and (8) Exploring Many Cultures. Some sections contain additional cultural information and reproducible pages for student use. A glossary is included. (CR)
