Folk Tales from Simla
Originally published in 1906, this collection of folklore from the Himalayas contains 56 stories, each offering a glimpse into the fascinating culture of hill-folk of Northern India. Hippocrene Books is pleased to bring these rare and treasured stories back into print for today's readers. Here are tales of Rajahs and princesses, magicians and witches, enchanted jackals, monkeys, and snakes who can speak like humans, and a host of other characters that will delight children and adults. While some of the stories have their counterparts in western folklore and mythology, many will introduce readers young and old alike to a new world of enchantment. Part of a vanishing way of life, the stories in this collection allow a whole new generation of readers to appreciate the culture, traditions, and folklore of the Himalayan people.
