As interest in the art of storytelling continues to grow, many books have appeared on the subject but none have matched the scope and charm of The Way of the Storyteller. First published in 1942, this classic work is unique in its blend of literary history, criticism, analysis, personal anecdote, and how-to instructions. Sawyer examines storytelling as a folk art and a still-living art, tracing its evolution from the earliest narrative impulses that developed as stories were written down. With simple suggestions, she instructs the reader in the art of storytelling and freeing the creative imagination by disciplining the mind. Sawyer's guide also includes an engaging selection of international stories sure to enchant both children and adults. The Way of the Storyteller also is an invaluable resource with a comprehensive reading and story list.

About the Author:

Ruth Sawyer (1880-1970) traveled through America, Ireland, and Spain collecting tales. Her retellings were authentic, backed by scholarly research. A frequent and much admired speaker in the United States, Sawyer collaborated on the Caldecott Honor book, Journey Cake, Ho! with her son-in-law, and noted children's book author, Robert McCloskey.
