YES AND NO STORIES

Georgians (Russian) have told stories over fires through the centuries. Some have been handed down, and embroidered in the process; some have the simplicity of old fables. The Papashvilys have brought them together and in retelling them have managed to hold the quality of a people's literature in the molding. There are peasants who win kings' daughters and wealth by their canniness; there are jesters and rogues, saints and sinners, giants and demons; there are animals who speak and act like humans. There's a freshness and a sent that make these tales good reading for all ages interested in folk material. Plus sale for the juniors.
