Book Description:

A fascinating insider’s look at the lives, cultures, and stories of tellers from around the world

In this unique collection of stories and personal interviews, folklorist Margaret Read MacDonald examines storytelling through the distinct voices of the tellers themselves. Ten Traditional Tellers offers an intimate look at their lives and art as they discuss their reasons for telling, their uses of the stories, and the influence of their cultural heritage. 

 

Coming from places such as Ghana, Brazil, and Thailand, the tellers include colorful characters like Vi Hilbert--a member of the Upper Skagit tribe--who continues to work despite near blindness, and Rinjing Dorje, whose bawdy shepherds’ tales shock his audiences and validate his identity in a western culture that expects piousness from Tibetans. In addition to the interviews, the book also includes brief introductions for each teller and one or two of their representative stories. 

About the Author:

Margaret Read MacDonald is the author of over forty-two books on folklore and storytelling, including Traditional Storytelling Today and Scipio Storytelling: Talk in a Southern Indiana Community.
