Tales from Silver Lands
Written by Charles Finger
Atmospheric woodcuts illustrate this Newbery Award-winning collection of 19 South American folktales. Charles J. Finger heard the tales firsthand from native storytellers, whose fables of talking animals, witches, giants, and ordinary people in supernatural settings provide remarkable insights into regional values and culture. Packed with adventure and full of surprises, the stories emphasize the importance of hard work, courage, and loyalty.
