Tales From Silver Lands.
Finger, Charles J.
In 1925, "Tales From Silver Lands" was awarded the Newbery medal as the most distinguished contribution to American children's literature for the year. The book contains a collection of 19 short stories learned from the Indians of South America as the author traveled to different lands. As described on the dust jacket, the tales are about "strange enchantments and ways of breaking them, giants and witches and under-sea people, fairy folk and earth people who have them for their friends." Included are illustrations of 5 woodcuts by Paul Honore. (EJ)
