Description: This collection of the folktales best known to the Chinese people presents elegant versions of nine classic stories. Included are the famous tales of Pan Gu and Nu Wo, the creators of the world and mankind; Ho Yi the master archer; Shun Wu Koong, the Monkey King who rebelled against authority; Wu Gan, the greedy little boy; Bai Su Tzin, the White Snake, and the Cowherd and Weaving Maid.

These stories offer a rare glimpse into the psyche of the Chinese people, and display the richness, beauty, and down-to-earth spirit of their culture. Chinese religion, philosophy, and tradition all permeate the tales, and yet all of the stories deal with human universals: self-sacrifice, wisdom, gentleness, vanity, greed, and love. The author sets each tale in a context and discusses the themes that run through them, and their significances. She also provides a list of characters, a pronunciation guide, and a resources section.
