Description
When Osamu, a lonely sail maker, nurses an injured crane one blustery night, he never suspects how this simple act of kindness will change his life. Weeks later, a mysterious woman arrives on his doorstep seeking shelter from a storm. Osamu again offers his help and soon they fall in love and marry. But when he learns of his wife's gift for making magic sails, ambition replaces compassion and Osamu risks losing the great happiness he has found.<P>One of Japan's best loved folktales, the story of the Crane Wife has inspired plays, movies, and even an opera. After hearing the tale from a student in one of his storytelling workshops, Odds Bodkin created his own imaginative version, first told on his well-reviewed audiotape collection of Asian stories, and now presented to a new audience in this richly illustrated book with art, based on traditional Japanese painting, by the award-winning Gennady Spirin.
